1. What is a hot tub made of?
Hot tubs are made of metal, insulation foam, plastic, and water. Spas are made of metal (typically steel) or fiberglass with a cover that is either polyester or vinyl, which contains PVC plastics. Hot tubs have an interior built-in pump to circulate the water while spas do not. Hot tubs also use electricity for heating, whereas spas use propane or natural gas. Hot tubs typically have seats and jets to massage your back, whereas spas do not, but they may be available as an optional add-on for a spa purchase.
2. How do you dispose of a hot tub?
Disposing of a hot tub is pretty straightforward. Make sure you take apart your hot tub by cutting it first to make to process easier. Once the hot tub is cut apart, remove any debris accumulated in the water and drain it. Hot tubs can be disposed of by taking them to a recycling center or hazardous waste facility for free.
