From time to time, spa owners face the hard decision of whether to move their beloved oasis or leave it be when they relocate. Who would want to leave behind such a valuable investment? With some planning, taking your hot tub with you is possible. While you are organizing the relocation, why not take the time to purchase a new Jacuzzi hot tub cover that matches your new home? Your backyard at your new location will quickly become the haven you dreamt it would be.

Whether Across Town or Across the Yard – How to Move Your Spa Safely

Moving your hot tub is not easy, but it is simpler if you follow these tips:

  1. Assess your new location thoroughly. Nothing would be more disappointing than getting your hot tub to your new home and discovering there is no room for it. Take time to carefully examine the available space at the new location. Does it have the proper foundation? Is there room for an electrical box? Look at the path the hot tub will take. Will you cross grass or landscaping?
  2. Check if you have a sub-panel on the cabinet. Sub panels can get expensive. It may save money if an electrician removes them and safely caps the wires for you.
  3. Talk with your favorite dealer about wiring up the spa in its new location. Many electricians may need help understanding precisely how a hot tub needs to be wired. One wire on the wrong jumper may render you without a usable spa.
  4. Let your hot tub company know about your move. It’s helpful to have the dealer know where they need to come when it’s time for any maintenance or repair work. Once things are moved, you may want them to come out to ensure everything is set up correctly.
  5. Research and hire a moving company. Spend some time finding the right company to move your spa. Talk to them about how they will pack it up. You can ask your local dealer for suggestions of moving companies with experience transporting hot tubs.
  6. Thoroughly drain the tub before moving day. Moving a dry basin is much easier and less messy. Use a wet vac to remove any additional water in the plumbing lines.
  7. Remove and clean filters. Now is a great time to clean out the filters. You may want to replace them if they look worn or are nearing the two-year mark.
  8. Consider replacing your cover. With all the special attention you are paying to your hot tub, remember to look at your existing vinyl cover and decide if it needs replacing. Aluminum jacuzzi hot tub covers perfectly replace a worn-out vinyl one.
