Here are some basics to consider if you are thinking about purchasing and installing a new hot tub.
The most important part of any hot tub installation is planning. There are a tremendous variety of locations and configurations that you may use to install a hot tub in or around your home. The closer your hot tub is to the house (or bedroom) the more often you will use it.
Installations on existing decks are not uncommon but be aware that most decks are not designed to support the weight of a filled hot tub and the advice of an engineer is highly recommended. Remember, the average filled hot tub can weigh in excess of 5,000 pounds.
The typical electrical wiring for a package hot tub system is one 240 volt (240v), 50 thru 60 amp electrical circuit. The National Fire Protection Association publication 72 (the NEC – National Electrical Code) requires that a disconnect switch be within visible distance from the pump, but at least 5 feet away from the edge of the tub (for safety reasons). All electrical circuits need to be protected by a GFCI electrical circuit breaker. Additionally, you will need to have an electrical receptacle between 6 and 20 feet from the hot tub. This electrical outlet can be on a general purpose electrical circuit and does require to be GFCI protected.
