Hot tub panel hook up

Published: 08.09.2017

Many codes require at least 5 feet 1. If you are not familiar with electrical systems, it is best to hire an electrician to assist you in this aspect of installation. If you don't have a firm foundation, you risk damaging the tub voiding any warranty it comes with.

Proceed at your own risk. What are the building codes for how far my hot tub needs to be from my home in Newnan, GA?

It contains a ground and a neutral since many spas have v components built in to them that require a neutral wire. Make sure that the width of the tub will pass through any gates, foliage, or structures with enough leeway. So if you want to bring wires in from the back you will need to break out the step bit and hole punch The size of the wire to be used is determined by the maximum current draw of the hot tub, the length of the wire run and the NEC or local codes. For the output section of the GFCI breaker, the load 1 output wire goes to line 1 of the spa and the load 2 output wire goes to line 2 of the spa.

The GFCI installed in this exterior spa panel load center that is used for hot tubs is of the 4 wire type. The electrician's installation process includes turning off the power at the main breaker and mounting the hot tub panel feet away from the spa, within the line of sight. The GFI will compare the outgoing power against the returning power on the other leg. Not Helpful 1 Helpful 2.

BUT, if the tub really does pull 50A and you have it on at the same time as other devices in the garage which are taking more than 10A then the 60A breaker will trip.

      Load 1 input wire goes to load 1 terminal, load 2 input wire goes to load 2 wire. Put it away wherever you normally store the hose.

      W orking on your own appliances, cars, covered wagons and hot tubs as well as anything else electrical or mechanical carries with it severe risk of injury or property damage. What you feed with that breaker, and the amperage required, and the amperage fed to the panel, is up to you.
