just moved to a new house. its has a hot tub and i've never owned one
before. the guy at the hot tub store says he uses a sump pump to empty
his. i understand why. it took hours to drain via a garden hose not to
mention i think i'm supposed to drain into my sewer line (hard to
cyphen to that) not the street. i'm on a small lot in a city. and the
thing stopped draining about 3" from the bottom leaving me gallons of
water to scoop out. not to mention its the nastiest stuff (have no
idea what the former owners did in there).
so i'm looking for recs on a sump pump and hose...and whatever else i
may need. the issue i see is getting the last drop out. probably also
want something that will shut off if it sucks air, fast would be
great. i don't think i want to go over $200 for everything. $100 would
be better. even used is cool so long as it works for say 20 drainings.
any recs from those that have gone before me?
