Choosing a hot tub or spa and deciding on just the right place to install it are very exciting decisions. Hot tubs and spas can provide years of enjoyment and relaxation for you and your family.
An electrician doing the wiring for a hot tub needs to have proper training and needs to understand local electrical codes as well as all technical requirements. Unlike electrical installation of some more typical appliances, spas and hot tubs require special attention from electricians for several reasons. First, because of the potential mix of electricity and water inherent with swimming pools, spas and hot tubs, there are many specific codes and regulations that need to be followed. Second, proper grounding is required for spas and hot tubs, as well as installation of special outdoor outlets. Third, different brands and types of spas and hot tubs can require 240V connections (especially those made in recent years), while slightly older hot tubs ran on 120V. Some spas and hot tub motors require 4-wire connections while others use 3-wire. Your spa or hot tub must be installed by someone who can read and understand these individual product requirements. Fourth, challenges in managing load for hot tubs and spas exist because of the complexity of spa motor and spa heaters running simultaneously. This can result in errant tripping. An electrician will need to install a special ground fault detector designed just for hot tubs to solve this problem.
