How to drain a hot tub with a hose

You need to empty your hot tub of all water to perform some of the maintenance required to keep your hot tub healthy and clean, ready to be enjoyed. But what to do if your hot tub doesn't have a drain conveniently located.

Well, fear not, there is a way. There a couple choices. You can use a sump pump. This is a submersible pump with an attached hose that is powered by electricity and will empty the water out of your tub in minutes. Be sure to follow the instructions on the sump pump ? you don't want to be careless when water and electricity are involved. You can also siphon the water out of the tub with a piece of tubing or hose using the good old-fashioned siphoning method. Stick one end of the hose in the tub's water and the other downhill. Suck quickly on the end pulling the water into the hose, but not into your mouth, and allow it to flow.

If that's too gross for you, you can also simply raise the tub end of the hose up high before quickly placing it in the water, once the hose has been laid out, to create a siphon. The suction caused should drain the tub water out through the hose very quickly.

Once your tub is drained, begin your maintenance.
