Hot Tub Installation
When buying a hot tub, consider your home’s electrical system. Many hot tubs use a 120V or 240V system. Plug-in spas are plugged directly into your traditional 120V outlet; these units are ready to use in only a few minutes. This often includes inflatable hot tubs that can be moved anywhere in your backyard.
Wired hot tubs are directly connected to your home’s electrical system and can be up to 240V. These spas require professionals for comprehensive and safe installation. Plug-in hot tubs don’t heat as well as wired spas that provide consistent heating because of their connection to your home’s system.
Common DIY Mistakes Include:
- GFCIs: Ground fault circuit interrupters (or GFCIs) are special plugs that prevent electrical hazards. If they’re not correctly wired, you risk electrocution and irreversible damage to your hot tub.
- Tripped breakers: Turning on your hot tub shouldn’t be a chore, so if your breaker trips every time you turn your spa on, your system may have a more significant problem. We have years of to keep your home safe and your backyard enjoyable.
- Poor waterproofing: Electricity and water don’t mix — that’s why it’s essential that all your electrical components are weatherproofed with proper insulation, waterproofing, and bonding to the rest of the system. Without it, you may experience shorts or electrocution from damaged parts.
- Grounding: Properly grounding any electrical system allows excess current to flow into the ground to prevent hazards and damage. This requires a connection between the hot tub or pool, its equipment, and the ground. Your new spa is at risk of a power surge and severe damage without it .
