How To Remove A Hot Tub

Steps To Remove A Hot Tub

  1. First, before you get all excited and start wiping the dust off all your power tools, be sure to locate a power supply. The tools won’t do you much good if you don’t have a power source.
  2. Make sure that you have a disposal solution in place. You won’t have to worry about this step if you’ve hired a junk removal to remove your hot tub. They will handle the hot tub disposal for you. However, if that’s not the case, you’ll need a pickup truck or dumpster.
  3. Locate the power relay box for the hot tub and make sure the power is off.
  4. Next, remove the hot tub cover and cover arm, if there is one.
  5. Remove all the side panels of the hot tub. (How To is shown in video).
  6.  Cut and remove all wiring and remove the power supply board from the hot tub
  7. Loosen or cut all the pipes leading to the motors and remove motors from the hot tub
  8. Break or cut all vertical supports of the hot tub
  9. Use sawzall to cut hot tub into quarters. Cut any pipes holding pieces together. (Refer to video for more on this).
  10. Cut or break the bottom frame and plastic tray
  11. Clean up area! Pick up all tools and sweep up around former hot tub site and truck.
  12. Finally, haul away hot tub and recycle any parts that are recyclable.

Additional Tips For Hot Tub Removal:

Please make sure your power tools, wires and cords stay away of water. DO NOT stand in standing water in case a live wire comes in contact with the water. Also, ensure you have proper footing when lifting and cutting the hot tub. We recommend that you wear eye glasses or goggles, gloves and a mask. Many hot tubs are made of or have fiberglass in them, and this can irritate the eyes, nose, throat, and skin.
