Turn Off the Power Supply
Safety is of utmost importance when it comes to disassembling a spa PR900W. Before proceeding with the process, turn off the power supply completely. This step is vital as water and electricity can be a fatal combination. Make sure that you switch off all power sources, including circuit breakers and disconnect switches.
Drain the Water
The next essential step in disassembling your spa PR900W is to drain out all the water from the tub. Failing to do so can result in accidents during the dismantling process. You must ensure that there is no water left inside the tub or pipelines before beginning disassembly. The best way to accomplish this task is by using a garden hose or suction pump if available.
Firstly, locate the drain faucet located at the bottom of the spa and attach one end of the hosepipe to it. Keep the other end of the hosepipe on the outside floor draining area. Switch on the faucet, which will allow the water to flow through the pipe outwards onto the ground. Once all the water has been drained, detach the hosepipe and let it dry thoroughly.
If you are utilizing a suction pump for this task, connect the pump’s tube to the drain faucet and position the other side of the tube where you want the water to flow out. Turn on the suction pump, and wait until all the water has been drained from the spa. Detach the pump after completing the task and remove any remaining water with a clean cloth. Also, remember to dispose of wastewater carefully, keeping its impact on the environment in mind.
- Make sure to follow these critical points before starting disassembly:
- Put on appropriate safety clothing, including goggles and gloves.
- Get the required tools ready for disassembling effectively.
- Have enough space to keep all parts of your spa tub neatly organized throughout the entire process.

Before proceeding with the disassembly process for spa PR900W, ensure that you are not putting yourself or others around you in harm’s way. By turning off the power supply completely and draining out all water from the tub, you can considerably reduce the chances of accidents during this task.
Disassembling the Panels
If you are experiencing issues with your Spa PR900W and need to disassemble it, then this guide will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to remove each panel. Disassembling a spa might seem intimidating, but by following these easy steps, you can do it efficiently and safely.
Remove the Front Panel
The front panel of your Spa PR900W is held in place with brackets that are screwed into the frame. First, shut off the power supply to avoid any electrical hazards. Use a screwdriver to remove each bracket from the wall or floor until they become freely hanging. Then, get someone to help you pull the front panel forward gently. You may use plyers to disconnect the hose connections going through the front panel if needed. Be careful during this process, so as not to damage any pipes or wires within the panel’s interior. When the front panel is completely detached, set it aside cautiously.
Detach the Side Panels
With the front panel removed, you can now access the side panel screws and brackets, which hold them securely onto the tub. Locate and unscrew all brackets attaching each side panel to the spa’s outer shell using a screwdriver. If your panels have handles, carefully lift outwards and upwards for release before unscrewing the mounting bracket. The panels should come loose when all bolts / screws have been detached. At this point, you can request assistance to carry each detachment away safely.
Take Apart the Back Panel
To detach the back panel, especially check underneath for any hidden screws. Explore the footwell area and inside cupboard portions looking for essential customization elements such as pumps, blowers basic wiring, etc. This could require unbolted hoses or snapped connectors around the piping. Carefully remove all screws securing the back panel, with appropriate pliers or screwdriver for support as needed to ensure minimal damage. If unsure of specific placement and clips required, document them first before operations such that they may be easily re-attached when done.
When you have accomplished detaching each panel, label and store the individual parts in separate containers to maintain their organization during assembly time. Additionally, do not forget to mark any corresponding brackets and fasteners so that you know where each one is attached upon reassembly. At this moment, it’s essential to clean all sections thoroughly, ensuring that no debris or dirt remains on every component before storing temporarily away. Furthermore, take an opportunity to investigate what caused the issue that prompted disassembling your Spa PR900W, such that any repairs are completed while it remains unoccupied.

Removing the Components
If you own a Spa PR900W and it’s time to disassemble it, there are several important steps that you need to follow. Taking apart your spa requires patience and attention to detail in order to prevent any potential damage to the components. In this guide, we will walk you through the process of removing the various components of your Spa PR900W.
Unscrew the Control Box
The first step in disassembling your Spa PR900W is to unscrew the control box. This can usually be found near the top of the hot tub. First, ensure that the power supply to the spa is turned off before attempting to remove any parts. Then, carefully loosen and remove the screws holding the control box in place. You may want to use a screwdriver or pliers for this task.
Once you have removed the control box, make sure to disconnect any wires that are attached to it. Be careful when handling these wires as they may still contain voltage if the power has not been fully disconnected.
Disconnect the Pump and Heater
The next component to remove is the pump and heater unit. The pump draws water from the hot tub and pushes it through the heater where it is heated before being returned to the tub. To start, shut off all power to the hot tub and then locate the plumbing connection between the pump and the hot tub. Use a wrench or pliers to loosen the connection and detach the pipe. Repeat this process for the heater units’ connections.
Once the connections have been loosened and detached, gently lift the pump and heater out of position. Take care not to damage any electrical wiring or hoses connected to either component. Set the pump and heater aside once you have successfully removed them from their mountings.
Remove the Jets and Blower
The final step involves removing the jets and blower from your Spa PR900W. Most hot tubs have a variety of jet types and placement, so it’s important to take note of their positions before removal to ensure proper reinstallation. Use the appropriate sized wrench or pliers to slowly unscrew each of the jets until they can be removed by hand. Repeat this process for the blower component, which provides the soothing bubbling effect in many spas.
With everything now disconnected and disassembled, you can safely clean individual components, replace any defective parts, or perform routine maintenance on your spa. Be sure to keep all components organized for easy reassembly later on.

Take Out the Filter
If you are disassembling your Spa PR900W, it’s likely that you need to perform some maintenance on it or move it to a new location. Regardless of the reason, the final steps of the process begin with removing the filter from your spa.
Filters play an essential role in maintaining clean and fresh water in your hot tub. They collect impurities and debris from the water as it cycles through the system. Although filters should be cleaned regularly, they can also become clogged over time and require replacement.
To remove the filter from your Spa PR900W, locate the filter compartment, which will either be accessed by unscrewing a cap or opening a hatch door. Once open, gently pull the filter out from its compartment. Be sure to dispose of the old filter appropriately, and replace it with a new one if necessary for optimal performance.
Detach the Cabinet from the Frame
The cabinet, or paneling, surrounding your spa is designed for aesthetic purposes. It serves no mechanical function but must be removed before you can take apart the frame that holds the plumbing and other components.
The easiest way to detach the cabinet from the frame depends on how it was installed. In most cases, screws hold the panels onto the frame. Locate these screws around the bottom edge of your spa and use a screwdriver or drill to unscrew them carefully. You may need help lifting or pulling off each panel from the frame.
In some cases, cabinets may attach to the frame using latches. If this is the case, release any latches securing your panels and gently lift them off. Remember never to force the panels off or apply too much pressure, or you risk damaging the panel and its grooves.
Disassemble the Frame
With the filter removed and panels detached, the next step in Spa PR900W disassembly is taking your spa frame apart. You should have access to the plumbing system, pumps, heaters, and any other supporting elements contained within this metal structure.
It’s essential to take detailed notes or refer to your user manual when taking down each component of the frame. The components may vary slightly from one model to another. First, turn off your spa and use a crescent wrench to disconnect the electrical lines feeding into the heater. Then loosen nuts to detach plumbing lines that lead to and from your motorized pump:
- Drain any remaining water out from the pipes before proceeding with dismantling the frame.
- Carefully unscrew band clamps around your heater before removing it from its slot on the frame.
- Detach hoses connecting the pump and blower after loosening their screws or bolts.
- Remove screws, nuts, or bolts that hold connecting pieces to the rest of the pipework.
