Removal of in-ground and above ground hot tubs.
Spas come in a few configurations.
For example, above ground or sunken into a deck are the most popular configurations.
The tub directly below is an above ground model, was relatively new however our client decided the upkeep was too high.
Case Study: Removal of an intact tub through a side gate.
Important to note, if your hot tub can come out in one piece it can save considerable amount of labor and is always the first option.
Fast and Responsive Service.
This client needed immediate removal.
Make note, the job was called in on a Monday and we were performing full service hot tub removal the next day.
Electricity must be unhooked
It is crucial the electricity be unhooked when dealing with any type of hot tub. Most hot tubs are connected to 240v electrical so attempting a hot tub removal without the proper preparation can be catastrophic.
Team work makes the dream work
Strength is only part of the solution when dealing with hot tub removal jobs.
Team work, proper lifting technique, experience and the ability to communicate effectively are a crucial part of the process.
Threading the needle
Most hot tub removal jobs take place in our customers backyards. However, sometimes the location can be the most difficult obstacle.
If your hot tub clears your side gate and other obstructions we can roll the spa right out. This is the best case scenario.
In the situation depicted below we had to avoid shrubbery, delicate gutters and expensive fence work.
Weighing in at 600 lbs, if the hot tub fell it could have easily punched a hole through the fence or our customers window.
But what if it doesn’t fit through my side gate?
If your spa does not fit through your side gate we can still help, we can demolish it.
Indeed, the demolition process includes cutting the spa into manageable pieces.
Of course this process is a tedious and dusty process which we can perform for you.
Spa Demolition and haul away is the answer.
When the spa doesn’t fit or is just way too dilapidated we must demolish it like mentioned above.
Check out the case study below:
brought in by crane, sat on a balcony and had to be removed through a luxury home.
No other way to do it, escrow needed to close and the spa needed to be out yesterday. Sound familiar?
You heard that right, this dusty leaky hot tub was extracted and carried through a staged luxury home, complete with expensive hardwood floors and immaculate white carpet.
Care and experience is a must for complex extractions.
There are perks to this job. The view is one of them.
Check out how narrow the balcony is.
The hot tub is demolished and surface is ready for clean up.
Spa removal must be done by a professional with experience expertise and muscle. Our experience dealing with such behemoths gives us the edge over the college student with a pick up truck or weekend warrior plucked from the pages of craigslist services.
At Eco-Dumpster® we are professionals with years of combined experience. We get the job done and work in most of the San Francisco Bay.
