Hot Tub Removal/Relocation FAQ’s
Should I empty my hot tub before the hot tub removal service arrives?
It is recommended that you completely drain your hot tub of all water before the spa removal service arrives. Not sure how to drain your hot tub? Simply attach a garden hose to the bottom of the hot tub’s drain spout. Once you are sure the hose is securely connected open the drain spigot and allow all water to drain out.
Should I disconnect my spa as well?
We suggest that the spa is thoroughly disconnected prior to the arrival of the removal service. If you are not sure or are not comfortable with disconnecting the electrical parts we highly recommend that you call an experienced licensed electrician. One thing everyone can do however, is turning the heater off on the side of the tub to allow the hot tub to cool down.
What do I need to know if I am relocating a hot tub to my backyard?
We strongly suggest that the spot in which you would like to place your hot tub is level and structurally sound to hold a filled spa. Each square foot of level space should be able to hold 100lbs. Also make sure that wherever you are placing the hot tub that the equipment compartment that houses the electrical system is facing away from where water will be drained. It is also important that you make sure the equipment compartment is accessible for periodic checks and maintenance.
