We can only imagine the excitement that was cultivated around your hot tub when you first bought it. Hot tubs, for many, are a rare luxury that are seldom enjoyed alone. Whether it’s the weird couple who’s getting a little too close, the rowdy children who may or may not be tinkling in the water, or the security guard who tells you that you have to leave because it’s past 9:00, there are just so many reasons why it’s easy to think, “this sure would be a lot better if I just had my own.”

Unfortunately, for many, a hot tub is enjoyed for a while before succumbing to neglect. Perhaps you’ve got your proper fill of hot-tubbing, and feeling like a steamy raisin is no longer on your daily priority list. Maybe you enjoy the hot tub, but it’s just too much work to keep it maintained. Maybe you’ve found that enjoying the hot tub with company is better than sitting in it alone every night.

Whatever your reason is for neglecting your once-beloved hot tub, you might be considering hot tub removal. Here are some signs that it’s finally time to go through with it.

It Might Be Time For Hot Tub Removal If:

Your Hot Tub Has Its Own Ecosystem

If you go outside, pull off that giant hot tub cover, and find out that you’ve discovered a new uncharted jungle, it might be time to let go of your hot tub. Water is a breeding ground for life, and if your hot tub is infested with all manner of flora and fauna, you’ve probably neglected it for just a little bit too long.

There are all kinds of organisms that can grow and thrive inside your hot tub if you haven’t taken precautions to prevent such things. Mold is all but guaranteed, but it’s also possible to find spiders and other creepy-crawlies making their home in your spa system. Naturally, if you find anything bigger than that, such as a conifer tree sprouting out of the bottom or a hibernating bear, there’s no room for doubt. While we are one hundred percent untrained in handling bears, our team at Spartan Junk Removal could at least take care of the hot tub for you.

Your Hot Tub is Now a Cold Tub

Another compelling reason to ditch the old hot tub is if it has lost its defining feature — that is, being hot. Hot tubs are complicated beasts, and if they’re not maintained, they could malfunction at any moment. In fact, this can happen even if you are taking perfect care of it. Hot tubs are finicky things.

Anyway, at this junction, you have two options — get rid of it, or pursue repairs. Your decision, of course, depends entirely on your usage. If you’re an avid user of your hot tub and you can’t imagine going a single night without its warm embrace, the easy solution is to fork out the money for repairs. But if you give it some long hard thought, and decide that your money would be better spent literally anywhere else, then maybe it’s time to give us a call for hot tub removal. It’ll be more affordable than those repairs, and with the money you’ve saved, maybe you can transition from the age of the hot tub to the age of the 4k HDTV.

You Need that Precious Porch Real Estate

Let’s be real here — hot tubs aren’t exactly small, which is one of the reasons why hot tub removal is specifically one of our services. And, due to its tremendous size, you might be making compromises with the space you have in your backyard. Your tub may be in your yard or on your porch or deck, but wherever it is, it’s probably taking up a lot of room.

Maybe you’ve decided that said space would be better served being taken up by something else. Maybe hot tubs are out and firepits are in. In any case, if you’ve recently had doubts about the usefulness of your hot tub, consider what alternative options you could have for its porch real estate. Is there something you can’t get your mind off of that you simply can’t resist? Are you kept up at night with loathsome feelings towards that old spa machine? It’s probably time to just get rid of it. You can set up your new gazebo, wedding pavilion, horseshoe stakes, or whatever else you fancy in its place.

You Can’t Remember the Last Time You Used It

There are many things that die of old age. People, animals, and, of course, hot tubs. Has it been years and years since you last used your hot tub? To help you identify if it’s time to get rid of the old junker, we’ve prepared a list that can help you decide.

Think of the last time you used your hot tub. If any of the following things were true, consider hot tub removal today:

  • The world was preparing for the Y2K crisis
  • The president’s name rhymed with “Borge Jush”
  • Tobey McGuire was the only Spider-Man
  • 1908 was the last time the Cubs had won the world series
  • There were only six Star Wars movies
  • You were using a flip phone
  • You had never heard of a “flip phone”
  • Your bald spot was a glorious mullet
  • The moon landing hadn’t happened yet

Okay, we could go on, but you get the point. Bottom line — if your hot tub is facing serious neglect, it’s probably best to get rid of it. This doesn’t have to be an arduous process — our junk removal team can take care of it, no problem.
