Most homeowners don’t realize it, but the wiring of a hot tub is a major consideration. The reason is due to the amount of power required for the heaters to work efficiently to provide that wonderful ‘hot tub experience’ for the people in it. In fact, wiring is so important that the National Electrical Code for Hot Tubs has a special section dedicated to it.
Regardless of size, all hot tubs must have proper grounding and GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) protection. These are the most important steps in making sure that users are safe. In case of emergencies, it should also have a disconnect, and the wiring should be protected from chemical damage and moisture.
If you are not sure if the wiring in your hot tub is right, contact us at HAYNES Electric Construction.

The cost of a hot tub inspection is minimal in comparison to the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your family and friends are safe in the water after our electricians have brought its wiring up to code. Also, if your hot tub has the option of running jets and heaters at the same time, we’ll make sure the wiring for this is properly done.
