Installing a hot tub, spa or jacuzzi can be an exciting but challenging project. Before installation, you need to consider both your local building codes and the electrical requirements of the unit. Unless you’re installing a replacement spa at a prepared site, you may need to add a dedicated circuit to your electrical panel, with a GFCI-protected outlet or subpanel located near the new spa. This work typically requires a building permit and should only be completed by a licensed and insured electrician.
The professional electricians at WIREONE have the know-how to wire your new hot tub or spa, quickly, efficiently and safely. Before getting started, we will pull the necessary permits to complete the installation. Once completed, we will test your new tub to make sure it is safe and operational before you ever step in it.
WIREONE will give you a detailed estimate after looking at your electrical panel and considering the specifications of your installation.
It usually takes a qualified electrician between 6-8 hours to complete a hot tub installation project, although the range of time can vary widely depending on the location of the unit, the availability of extra circuit locations, and the existing electrical load on your main panel. Most of the time, WIREONE can complete your hot tub installation on our very first visit to your home.
Electrical wiring for a hot tub, spa or jacuzzi is complicated and needs to be installed according to local codes to ensure safety. A professional electrician will ensure your spa is installed properly to eliminate any chance of electrocution or potential fire hazards. The electrician will also pull all required permits.
The electrical panel for your new spa must be at least five feet from your new hot tub. This distance is needed to prevent possible electrocution risks. Power and wiring requirements for hot tubs vary depending on their size. For installation, most spa panels require either a 50 or 60-amp, 220-240-volt ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) or a 15-amp, 120-volt GFCI. Whatever the requirements are of your specific spa, WIREONE will be able to get the job done quickly and efficiently. We have been installing hot tubs for more than a decade.
