How would i destroy a hot tub for disposal?

A very strage question for the Dibb I know but im looking for any advice as to how I would destroy an enormous hot tub. The people who owned our house before us had it installed and built a brick building around it so there is no way we can get ot out in one piece. I think the only way to get rid of it is to cut it into pieces with an electric saw maybe but i dont know what i need to buy to do the job. Are there any companies that would take on this sort of work for me?

Do you need to keep the building? Just wondering if it may be cheaper and more practical to pull the building down and put the hot tub for sale on gumtree. Buyer collects.

The best tool for the job would be a Reciprocating saw with wrecker blades - quick and fun but produce a lot of fiberglass dust so you'd need FFP3 filter grade face masks and googles.

You'd also need to make sure its disconnected from water source and power before starting any work.

I used an angle grinder with a masonry disc to cut one up. Smelly and messy so wear protective mask and glasses.

Yes, the building is beautiful and the hot tub broken so its not worth trying to get it out in ome piece.

I have an electrician coming to properly disconnect it before I start so it will be safe. Thank you for the information regarding masks ect. I knew i would need something so thats really helpful.
