Three Ideas for What to Do with your old Hot Tub in Fort Worth

hot tub Removal and Disposal

updated 6/17/22



One of the best ways to relax and unwind after a long day of work is to slip into the warm, rejuvenating waters of a hot tub. Here in the Fort Worth area, hot tubs can easily be enjoyed year round, including during those pleasantly cool autumn and winter days. Hot tubs are generally a pretty sizable investment, and most homeowners hope to get a lifetime of use from the hot tub they purchase and install. Unfortunately, many of the more economical hot tubs hitting the market today are considerably less durable. 


According to one industry professional, “A hot tub can last anywhere from 5-20 years or more. Cheaper hot tubs made with lower quality materials won’t last long. If those hot tubs are not well maintained, they may not last more than 5 years.”

Of course, proper maintenance and care can drastically increase the lifespan and durability of your hot tub. But even the best models will eventually break down and need to be replaced. With the average hot tub weighing several hundred pounds, what exactly are you supposed to do with a hot tub when it finally breaks down? 


Below, we offer three ideas for how you can keep your hot tub out of the local landfill through up-cycling, recycling, or hiring Junk King of Fort Worth to help you dispose of your old hot tub in the most environmentally friendly way possible. 


Use Your Creative Side to Up-Cycle your old Spa or Hot Tub


The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals estimates that, “of the 125 million US households, there are roughly 5.8 million hot tubs owned. Based on these figures, about 4.6 percent of US households and 1.8 percent of people have a hot tub at home.” If we take an average life span of 10 years, that means that every decade or so there are close to 6 million hot tubs that need to be disposed of. Instead of simply storing those old hot tubs in the garage or leaving them to rot away on the back deck, it is possible to “up-cycle” your old Jacuzzi. 


Up-cycling is the practice of reusing discarded objects or materials in such a way as to create a product of higher quality or value than the original. Whereas recycling generally focuses on breaking down an object into its raw materials to be sent back into the industrial manufacturing supply chain, up-cycling focuses on using the entire object in its present state, but for a different use. 


Up-cycling generally requires a bit of creativity and thinking “outside the box.” For example, a few unique ideas for up-cycling an old hot tub could include: 



  • Turn it into a pond: The shell of your old hot tub can be carefully placed into the ground, covered with a vinyl or rubber pond membrane, and turned into a beautiful water feature for the landscape surrounding your home. With a small pump and some decorative rocks, you could even include a fountain, a small waterfall, and even put in some Koi fish. 
  • Turn it into a Planter: Similarly, once the spa is stripped down of the plumbing fittings and the insulation, you could turn the shell into a unique raised bed to plant vegetables, flowers, and more. 
  • Turn it into a dog house: Lastly, an old hot tub could also be up-cycled into a unique dog house. Simply flipping over the shell, cutting out a doggie door, and adding some painting will give you a cheap and functional dog house for your pet! 



Recycle your old Hot Tub 


If you don’t have the time or energy to up-cycle your old hot tub, you can also simply recycle it. Unfortunately, recycling a hot tub will generally require a bit of work on your end. Instead of simply hauling it out to the curb, you will most likely have to remove the spa side controls, all of the equipment, and plumbing fixtures. Once the electronics are removed, you can strip away the cabinet from the shell, separate the PVC and other plastics, and other items. Most of the main components of a hot tub such as vinyl, foam, steel, and nylon can be recycled, but you´ll most likely need to do the demolition work first.

Mattress Removal Fort Worth: Do You Have Old Mattresses Lying Around Taking Up Space?


Mattresses can be used for years and years. However, there is a limit to the longevity of a mattress, meaning that they will need to be replaced from time to time. When that happens, people will need to do something about their old mattresses that are still lying around. Theoretically, some people might be tempted to let them be. In practice, that tends to be a very bad idea.

What Are 3 Reasons For Mattress Removal Now?


Here are 3 reasons that people should get rid of their old mattresses now rather than wait until later:


  • Remove Your Clunky Clutter


It is very easy for people to build up clutter. After all, most of us acquire new possessions on a regular basis. However, most of us don’t get rid of our old possessions with the same kind of enthusiasm; something that is particularly true for bigger, bulkier items because getting rid of them isn’t always easy to do. This results in clutter build up and unsightly problems. 

Although some people prefer open and spacious surroundings while other people prefer something cozier and more comfortable, it’s very rare for people to choose to feel cramped and closed-in with clutter—the inevitable result of acquiring new possessions without getting rid of old possessions first. For that matter, even if people don’t mind the clutter, its mere existence prevents the space from being used for something more beneficial for them and can be hazardous. 

Old mattresses are particularly bad when it comes to clutter. For starters, even the smallest mattresses are still sizable, meaning that they take up a lot of space that could be better used for something else. Second, their size being an inconvenience, many often procrastinate disposing of mattresses as they don’t have a solution to getting rid of them. As such, interested individuals should be proactive about the disposal of old mattresses lest they wind up with them lying around for a very long time to come.

On a related note, the presence of old mattresses can have a very real impact on people’s well-being. It is well-known that the look of our surroundings can have a huge effect on our happiness. In turn, happier people have lower chances of getting a wide range of serious medical problems, which translate into meaningful consequences for not just longevity but also quality of life. Thanks to this, one can say that clutter has the potential to cause health issues in the long run. 


  • Your Old Mattress Has No Reuse Value


Some assets have a lot of reuse value. In contrast, other assets have either no or next-to-no reuse value. For example, real estate properties tend to have so much reuse value that their price on the real estate market will rise rather than fall in the long run. Meanwhile, something like a car will see its resale price start to fall at a precipitous rate as soon as it moves out of the car dealership. Mattresses fall into the second category. Moreover, there are either no or next-to-no exceptions to this rule.

If interested individuals think about it, the lack of reuse value should be very understandable. First, mattresses aren’t so sturdy that they are resistant to change. If they were, they wouldn’t be much use for their fundamental purpose. The issue is that this kind of change can make for a less and less comfortable place to sleep, thus causing mattresses to lose their value bit by bit. It doesn’t happen right away, but there can be no doubt that it does happen. Something that should be clear to anyone who has ever slept on a mattress that’s beyond it’s lifespan.

Second, mattresses can build up a fair amount of dirt, dust, and other unwanted substances. As a result, they have been known to trigger allergies as well as other health issues. After all, those unwanted substances can include everything from bacteria to bed bugs. The latter might not be a carrier of human disease, but the simple fact of them feeding upon human blood is more than enough to make most people very uncomfortable for very understandable reasons. Technically, it is possible for mattresses to be cleaned, thus making them as pristine as possible under the circumstances. However, most people wouldn’t like to count on that to say the least.

The lack of reuse value has a noticeable impact on resale price. Moreover, even if people make it known that their old mattresses are free for the taking, there won’t be a lot of people interested in that offer. As such, mattress disposal is often the simplest and most straightforward approach but if there is value still left in the mattress yet you’d still like to dispose of it, Junk King Fort Worth professionals know how to determine if a mattress is worth donating vs. recycling.

  • You Deserve A Good Night’s Sleep


Some people might be tempted to continue using their old mattress until that becomes impossible in the literal sense of the word. Suffice to say that inertia is powerful, meaning that this is a common scenario. However, interested individuals should switch mattresses long before this point because a good night’s sleep is a cornerstone of human health.

As mentioned earlier, mattresses can become deformed through their continuing use. This changes their shape, which in turn, changes the support that they provide their user. Thanks to this, people can experience disruptions during the night, thus making for either irregular sleep or even difficulties getting sleep in more extreme cases.

In the short run, a lack of sleep can be devastating. For starters, people can feel fatigue, thus impairing their performance in both public and private. Even worse, a lack of sleep has been known to worsen mental faculties such as the ability to memorize and the ability to concentrate. It is even possible for people to start falling asleep for short moments before snapping awake. Under normal circumstances, this can be disruptive but not too dangerous. However, there have been examples of people getting into accidents because of this microsleep happening while they were engaged in something that required their full concentration. 

Simply put, people should switch out their old mattresses for fresh replacements to provide themselves with the best chances of getting a good night’s sleep. This will enable the best performance on a day-to-day basis. Moreover, this will protect their health and happiness in the long run because the effects of our daily choices will add up over time.
