Hot Tub Wiring Requirements

All hot tubs need a dedicated 240V GFCI circuit in order to operate safely. Knowing this, you will need to make sure that your home is running at least 100 amp service. Most of the homes built in the last 30-40 years will meet this requirement. In fact most modern homes highly exceed 150+ amp service. However if you live in an older home you will likely have to upgrade your electrical service before you can have a hot tub installed. If this is the case the electricians at CET can easily do a “heavy up” service to upgrade your home’s electrical service so that you can have a hot tub installed.

Hot Tub and Electric Safety Precautions

If you are hoping to have a hot tub installed their are a few precautions that you will need to take.

1. Never install a hot tub directly below power lines. This is very unsafe and a violation of the National Electrical Code!

2. Always avoid underground wiring when installing an outdoor hot tub. If you have space restrictions do not wire the hot tube less than five feet away. You hot tub should also be installed in a metal conduit, metal conduit or non metallic raceway system.

3. Do not install any lighting within 10 feet of the hot tub.
