Inside the bath, there are controlled or non-controlled jets, into which under-pressure water and air are supplied through special tubes, providing a pleasant massage feeling and the effect of “boiling water” in the jacuzzi. The water pressure in the nozzles is quite significant and if you have not shut off the valve that supplies water in advance, a lot of unpleasant surprises await you. It is better to carefully inspect all water connections; often nozzles and other pressure elements have their own separate power supply and, in some cases, a separate additional pump.
After you have turned off all the water, hot and cold, supplied to the taps, showers, and jets, turn off the electricity. With proper installation, a separate machine is installed on the jacuzzi and shower. In this case, it will be easy to de-energize the devices. It makes sense to refer to the technical documentation to know if you have forgotten about any steam generator or sauna effect for sure.
When removing the bath itself, it is best to cut it into pieces, along with a frame, an insulating pillow, and a foam base. The weight of the bath together with the frame is from (“is from” = “ranges from ”) 200 to 800 kg, so sawing the bath is the best option.
In some cases, a hot tub may have a concrete or brick base. This fact must be kept in mind and some care must be taken when sawing a hot tub with a power tool. The concrete base is broken with a sledgehammer and taken out in garbage bags.
It is worth noting that the jacuzzi removal requires professional knowledge, great physical strength, and endurance, as well as a professional, and rather expensive set of protective clothing. Therefore, in order to avoid embarrassing situations, all the removal and hot tub recycling works are always better to be held by professionals.
