Pump Needed

In a lack of forward thinking I have placed my hot tub behind the pond on my patio and therefore have no way to drain the hot tub - as I am sure the pond wouldn't like the hot water or the peroxide based chemicals I use in it. So I need recommendations for a pump or other alternative to remove the water from the spa to the storm drain across the pond and through the grass and over the walkway. AND NO I am not going to deal with the hose siphon set up - as I get older I have less patience for that set up. :-)

A proper installation should be plumbed to discharge to waste from the spa pump. Fix it if you don't have that.
Some jurisdictions consider this sanitary waste and do not permit wasting to lawns or storm drains.

it is a portable, not a fixed installation. altho now that I am thinking about it, it would be easier to run it into the kitchen sink anyway! thanks

OK, HD has a Little Giant - thank you all for "pointing" me in the right direction. What would my life be like without alt.home.repair? (rhetorical question) ;-0

Claudia: May I suggest? "Dull, uninspired, lacking advice, unguided, possibly unsafe, more expensive, time wasting etc. etc. .... "! :-) It's the two heads (or more) are better than one, eh? With thanks to all who suggest/comment/assist posters of questions to this group. Terry PS. Even when we misunderstand the question (never deliberately of course!) we do our best. Although occasionally we do jest, a little! Have fun.

Go to your local pool supply shop and ask for a pool cover pump. They are a small pump designed to pump water off of pool covers, are submersible and will pump down to maybe 1/2 inch of water. You connect a garden hose to it, plug it in a 120V outlet and place it in the bottom of the spa.
