Palm Harbor Hot Tub RemovalHot tub removal. Ugh. What a pain. But, your hot tub isn’t the glorious and relaxing oasis it used to be and is now nothing more than an eyesore. It’s leaking and not heating like it should, so, you think you’re stuck with it. You can deal with an old hot tub by disconnecting and removing it. The biggest problem you’ll have is to get it off your property or out of a foreclosure because you can’t sell it or give it away. Another problem on your hands is the fact that it won’t be easy to disconnect it because it’s backed into a corner.

What to Know about Hot Tub Disposal

Before you drain it out and start ripping apart pieces, you’ll need a plan for what to do with the unit. As stated, you can’t just put it anywhere. And, the local trash collection agency certainly won’t be of any help. And, it could get you hit with a code violation.

When a hot tub is no longer wanted, there are a few different ways to get rid of it. A used hot tub that is in good condition can be sold to someone else. One that doesn’t work well can be removed by hot tub disposal professionals. These companies typically either practice hot tub recycling or re-manufacture the tub into a new unit. The last option is home hot tub disposal, which usually requires time, tools, and the ability to take the parts to a trash disposal area. --Home Questions Answered

That’s a huge risk, not to mention the fact that it’s at the very least a huge eyesore. After all, it’s not going to magically transform itself into a new appliance. Which ultimately means you need to dispose of it responsibly.

Now, that means you have a lot of work ahead of you. (This is why it’s best to hire a junk removal service which specializes in hot tub removal and more.) Taking this route will take the burden off your hands and you won’t have to do all the work. Plus, you won’t have to worry about disposal. So, do the following for hot tub removal:

  • Disconnect the power supply. Turn off the power supply at the breaker and then remove the panel on the hot tub to disconnect the electrical cord. Disconnect the wiring from the hot tub and then disconnect it from the supply port.
  • Disconnect the water supply. Using channel locks or an adjustable wrench, disconnect the water supply to the hot tub. Place the pipes off to the side where you won’t trip over them.
  • Remove the outside skirt. Examine the hot tub skirt to determine how it’s connected. Then, take it off the amenity carefully to avoid any bodily injury.
  • Disassemble the tub itself. Now, you can opt to disassemble the tub or leave it whole. If you do choose to cut it up, you’ll have to dispose of the materials. Keep in mind, this will be messy work, so it’s usually best not to cut the tub apart.
