Hot Tubs

Hot Tubs

The requirements of the water pumps, air blowers and heating coils require a lot of power, as much as a double oven!  Not only will a heavy duty circuit be required, but special ground-fault protection is needed as well.  There are also requirements about the location of outlets nearby and an accessible power disconnect.  This makes the electrical installation quite involved.  It can cost from $900 - $1800 depending on where the hot tub is going, the difficulty of running the wiring and other items required to pass the electric code.

Helpful Hints:

  • If your hot tub isn't working:

  • Check if there's power at the hot tub.  Try the light and blower.

  • Is there a GFI reset button on the controls (sometimes behind the access door)?

  • Has the circuit breaker tripped?  Try clicking the breaker completely off and then back on again.

  • Perhaps the breaker only trips when the heater is turned on.  This would indicate that the heater needs to be replaced.
