  1. Thanks everyone. I think I’ve got a plan. Going to use that Ace pump in the link above and the hose (not the blue one) in the link above. the plan is to pump to this downspout which has underground piping that discharges towards the street in front of my house.
  2. Thanks. I think I’m going to use this pump with a garden hose discharge https://www.acehardware.com/brands/ace/40003 and this hose which is lightweight for storage with a 600PSI burst rate zero-G 4001-50 Lightweight, Ultra Flexible, Durable, Kink-Free Garden Hose, 5/8-Inch by 50-Feet,Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B014M9PEXC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fabt1_F11UFbHY48292?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 those expandablE hoses won’t work because they only expand under pressure But there won’t be much pressure since it will be open @meh64 I agree I was worried ab

  4. That was my original plan. But will a submersible pump at say 900 GPH rio apart that expanding hose?
  5. Yes. But two reasons for that. One, I don’t want to kill the grass. And second the lawn isn’t sloped so that much water would cause it to swamp up. maybe I need to go the submersible pump route
  6. @CanadianSpaTech Before I buy this quick drain you mention could you please tell me if the hose must lay at ground level to work? I ask because I am going to drain into my downspout which is about 2 foot above ground...
  7. My question is what hose you recceomend me using for draining with the pump that can store flat/expand. thoughts?
  8. Custer - do you not advise the flat blue hose for hot tubs?
  9. Hot tub arriving soon and getting all the parts. I’m wanting to get a submersible pump I can use to drain the tub along with some sort of hose that lays flat or doesn’t take up much space to store. Questions: 1) if I purchase a 1/4 HP pump can I use those collapsing/expandable garden hoses to hook up to the pump or will the pump burst those types of hoses? 2) what about those blue lay flat discharge hoses? The hose will have to go around a corner. Are these lay flat discharge hoses bendable like that? 3) If none of the above, what pump and hose that won’t take up
  10. Thanks. Maybe I’ll go to the landscaping center and see what I can find and load up some 5 gallon buckets
  11. IlL have to see what it costs. The delivery is a killer. 180 just to deliver. The material is cheap
  12. I think I’m about done. Turned out okay. Will see how goes with the hot tub. Brought and tampered the crushed granite level to ripped boards. Only concern I have now is that the granite while small (3/8”) is physically impossible to be 100% completely totally level with the stringers. Being stone with odd shapes it’s close but not exact. I hope it’s okay.
  13. It’s not a plug in but the model is convertible to 110 or 220. Mines going to be hooked up to 220
  14. I live in Denver. I pulled the trigger about 4 weeks ago - but it won’t be here till late November (hot tubs are seriously back ordered due to pandemic) and have been getting the 220v electrical run and building the box/gravel base in preparation. it’s a small tub for a small footprint. 5x7 3 person. good question on the 24hr circulation pump. Do I want a 24 hr circ? I need to look up and see. It’s only a 1-pump with 2 speeds due to the size of the tub. What I liked about it was it’s nothing as high/tall as the others. Sitting on the base I’m building most hot tubs sat way
