Does anyone have any recommendations as to how I can dispose of an old
hot tub. I have tried to cut it apart with a rotary zip saw but it is
taking forever. Is there a better blade I can use vs. the masonary
one that they suggest? I need to get rid of this beast!
Please email me directly if you can as well as post your response.

Rent a SawzAll for a few hours. Most any blade that comes with it will make
short work of the fiberglass. Cut it up in handy sized chunks and put it out
with the trash. Remember that your refuse professionals are people too, and
keep the total load in each container reasonable. HTH
Don't know about hot tubs, but Dilbert put his busted computer in a school
yard late at night.
He got the idea from his boss who said that's what HE did with an old
The last panel has Dilbert, in a ninja suit, putting his old computer atop a
refrigerator lying on its side and muttering to Dogbert: "What's sad is I
couldn't think of a better idea."

Never send a boy to do a man's job.Rent or buy a SawzAll and you can have the
thing sliced, diced and ready for the trash in under an hour. Most any SawzAll
blade will go through fiberglass readily. You could do it with a sturdy saber
(jig) saw, too.
Whatever, make the pieces small enough so the your garbage professional can
lift the container. They would appreciate it if you did the disposal over two
or three weeks.
I have gotten on good terms with my garbage men by giving them cold bottles
of water and Gatorade. We have been doing a remodel, so have had lots of
things to get rid of. I know they have saved me many a trip to the dump.
Just Wednesday, they took a dead refrigerator. They have taken sheetrock,
studs, cabinets, carpet, padding, lots of construction debris. Be nice to
your garbage men. Break things down into manageable sized pieces. Give
them some water now and again. Get out there and help them load. Haven't
had to try it yet, but I think mine would haul off a body for me if I had it
wrapped properly. Saves a trip to the desert. ;-)
