* Most 240 volt Spas Are 50 or 60 Amp. 8 gauge wire for 50 amp. and 6 gauge wire for 60 amp.
IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME OWNING A 240 VOLT SPA YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE A GFCI AND WRING INSTALLED
TO THE SPA.
What is a ground fault?
According to the National Electrical Code, a “ground fault” is a conducting connection (whether intentional or accidental) between any electric conductor and any conducting material that is grounded or that may become grounded. Electricity always wants to find a path to the ground. Ina ground fault, electricity has found a path to ground, but it is a path the electricity was never
intended to be on, such as through a person’s body.
Because of this potential for shock, GFCI protection is used to protect human life. Circuit breakers and fuses only protect equipment—they will not protect people.
Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI)
4 WIRE hook up: 240 and 120 volt to spa (TYPICAL)
NOTE: Refer to the label inside the wiring compartment for the size of supply wire used.
*The National Electrical Code (NEC) specifies installation of an approved manual disconnect device adjacent to the hot tub, at least 5 feet away, and within line of sight.
The NEC also requires a 120V receptacle within a 10-20 foot distance from the spa.
