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.
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
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.
