Stop Floating Spas

When the water in a fiberglass inground spa has to be changed and you suspect ground water, try this. Float a large sheet of plastic or tarp over the top of the spa after setting the sump pump. Start adding water on top of the sheet at the same rate as old water is being removed by the pump. When the spa is full of fresh water, remove sheet. By using this method the spa will never be empty, therefore, there is no chance the spa will pop out of the ground. This method can also be used on pools.
