Hot Tub Removal Tips
Hot tub removal is not as easy as most homeowners think it is. If you’re looking to have your old, tired, hot tub removed, be ready for some serious heavy lifting – a average hot tub typically weighs over 500 pounds when empty! Even with a tiny team of laborers, removing a hot tub is difficult. With a hot tub sitting on your patio or in your back yard, it will be tough work, and will probably take a lot of brute force and muscle power to remove it from its location.
There are a variety of techniques that are used in hot tub removal. Some people like to haul out the old, broken, or unwanted units to the landfill. While this is an option, it’s probably not the best one for everyone. Most people who want to rid themselves of old hot tubs prefer to get the newer models. They’re smaller, less expensive, and less troublesome. These models are also built to last longer and, while they won’t provide the same comfort as the old ones did, they will at least provide you with all the same basic features, like an indoor or outdoor hot tub.
Another method people prefer for getting rid of their old tubs is donating them to charity. This doesn’t always work out as well as you’d imagine – it can be difficult to find a local charity that accepts your junk, and in some cases you might even be required to haul your old tub away by yourself. However, if you do happen to donate your hot tub to a charity, there’s a chance that they will use it in a purpose-built center for people who cannot afford to buy an outright brand new hot tub. This center will allow people who need a place to relax and get away from the stresses of daily life to have a place to relax. The charity will either repair or refinish your tub after donating it, but you can expect to find everything you need to enjoy it at a greatly reduced price.
