What you may do depends on specifically

In reply to wiring hot tub by mike goodhartt on February 28th, 2003 03:17 PM [Go to top of thread]

what you have. The basic difference between a hot tub and a spa is that a hot tub is constructed of wood whereas a spa is made of plastic, concrete tile, fiberglass or other manmade material. You have a spa I presume? There are basically two types of spa: "Self-contained" where all of the support equipments are integral to the unit and "packaged" where the support equipments are mounted on a common base. How the electrical supply is configured is dependant on how the unit is built and designed. You need to address your questions to the manufacturer and a qualified electrician or inspector. An important note: Some spas and hot tubs are furnished with a cord-and-plug set when shipped by the manufacturer. Where these can be converted from cord-and-plug connection to "hard wiring" they are listed and identified as "convertible" and in this case the manufacturer must furnish clear instructions as to how the conversion from cord-and-plug set to hard-wiring is to be done. Since you state the unit has its own breaker, this is probably okay as a service disconnecting means, but we can't answer your questions without more specifics. You should have the information you need with the unit. If not, locate an owners manual as your first order of business. no, this is one you don't want to trust to luck. Yours in safety, Kizmet
