Why Not Just Wire Your

Own Hot Tub? 

    Well for some people, they might ask themselves, the question, Why don't I just wire my own hot tub?  It looks pretty easy right? The answer is probably not.

        While some models only require a 120V plugin, most do not. Most regular sized hot tubs require a 240V connection to be hard wired to the hot tub. They also require a GFCI Breaker to be installed somewhere in the installation. They also require a disconnect to be located within line of sight of the hot tub.

            There is also the issue of what wire size is needed to hook up this specific hot tub? There is also the question what breaker do I need? Will my panel be able to even support adding a hot tub? Do I need an electrical inspection? Are there other rules to follow?  Is this starting to sound complicated? 

      If you answered yes, then you are not alone. The proper electrical wiring of a hot tub is crucial for the safety of the occupant’s home and occupants. It should be installed by a licensed electrician.

Tips on Before Hot Tub

Wiring Happens 

    Are you getting a Hot Tub?  That's Terrific!  Here is a list of things to think about before  getting  your hot tub hooked up.

  • The hot tub needs to be placed on a solid & level foundation. This is important for the operation of the tub and to make sure that the water stays in!

  • No overhead power lines above within 10 feet of the hot tub.

  • If installing on a deck, make sure that it is engineered to be able to take weight of the tub

  • Consult with your electrician to make a plan to make sure the hot tub wiring installation will go smoothly(possibly running the hot tub cable wiring underground or through a conduit where applicable).
