How to Drain a Hot Tub With a Hose

If you have an old hot tub which didn’t come equipment with a water drainage valve, a quick and easy way to remove the water if required in a hurry is with a hose.

All Penguin Hot Tubs come equipped with a quick water drainage valve - ideal for holiday lets.

Draining the hot tub is a necessity for every hot tub owner. The timing of the draining intervals depends on the number of users in the hot tub every day and may be as often as every week for commercial settings or as little as every 3rd month for a single user. Many tubs have drains built in at the base of the access panel while others require siphoning.

tip: Use the waste water to water your garden and plants but be sure not to use any chemicals in the hot tub for two to three days beforehand - test the water first (pH).

Step 1

Run the hose for a couple of minutes, then place the end of a garden hose in the hot tub, dropping it straight down into the water so that it lies on the bottom.

Step 2

Turn off the hose, disconnect it from the faucet, and keep it low to the ground. Crimp the hose if the faucet is higher than the hot tub and take the end of the hose to the lowest place in your garden, allowing the water to pour by gravity from the hose.

Step 3

Go back to the hot tub and make sure the hose stays at the bottom of the tub as the water level drops. Position the end of the hose at the lowest part of the hot tub when the water is almost all drained to suck out the last remaining water.
