FAQ

Hot tubs require GFCI or Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter protection for the circuit feeding the hot tub. This can be accomplished by installing a cable or wire rated for outdoor use from the circuit breaker panel to a GFCI receptacle near the hot tub. And, although not always required, they sometimes require a disconnect for shutting down the power to the hot tub. These are known as Spa Buddys. The Spa Buddys serve a dual purpose as they also provide the circuits with GFCI protection.

A GFCI is an electronic device that is used to protect against electrical shocks. A ground fault occurs when there is a break in the circuit, which can cause an electrical current to flow through the body. This can happen if you touch a live wire or if you come into contact with a piece of metal that is not properly grounded.

A GFCI is designed to sense when there is a ground fault and then quickly shut off the power to prevent an electrical shock. It works by sensing when there is a difference in the current flowing through the hot and neutral wires, and then it trips the circuit breaker to shut off the power. They are required in many areas of the home, such as kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms, where there is a risk of coming into contact with water.

Yes, most hot tubs require special wiring. The type and size of wire used will depend on the make and model of your hot tub, as well as the distance from the main electrical panel to the location of the hot tub. To determine the appropriate wiring, the manufacturer’s specifications should be consulted.

No, you will need to hire a licensed electrician to install your hot tub. This is because this is a job that requires specific knowledge and skills, as well as the proper tools to ensure it is done correctly and safely. Not to mention, hot tub installations have their own set of specific electrical rules that must be adhered to in Canada. Depending on where you live, your local municipality may have adopted the Canadian Electrical Code rules for modified versions that better reflect the conditions in your area.

Every hot tub requires a different amount of power and these requirements will determine the amps you need to supply them with. The average hot tub requires a 30-amp circuit to operate. However, some larger hot tubs may require a 50 or 60-amp circuit. To be sure, consult the manufacturer’s specifications.

Hot tubs can run on both 120V or 240V electrical power. The 240V hot tubs are more common than their 120V counterparts.

Hot tubs require a lot of electricity to operate, so they cannot be plugged into a regular outlet. In addition, most hot tubs have special features like jets and lights that add to the electrical load.

68-068 of the Canadian Electrical Code (CEC) states that it should be no closer than 1.5 meters away if it is an integral part of an approved factory-built hot tub
