Where Water and Electricity Meet is No Place to Try to DIY

It can be tempting to wire your own hot tub. The home improvement gurus make it look so easy! But doing so is a VERY bad idea. Wiring is dangerous enough to begin with–without hot water in the mix. So, put those wire snips down and call us instead! It’ll save you headaches and, potentially, a trip to the morgue.

But what makes hot tub wiring so hard? Hot tubs require elaborate grounding systems and GFCI protection. They also require things like heaters and 240-volt feeds. Larger units must be hardwired to a junction box and need a properly maintained disconnect switch. Where you can and can’t install is also something the average homeowner wouldn’t know. You need to place the unit a lawful number of feet away from the house and keep it within a compliant distance from both underground and overhead electrical lines.

What to Do Before Calling in a Hot Tub Wiring Expert

Because they are large and complex systems, hot tub installation can be tricky. While electrical work is to be done relatively early on, it’s not the first step in the process. So, before you call us, you need to:

  1. Get Approval: Check with your HOA to find out if they require prior approval. If so, start the approval process. Cross Electric will handle any required city permits.
  2. Choose a location. Hot tub wiring will do you no good if you later decide to move your hot tub. When installing, make sure the space you choose has enough leeway for getting in and out. Most city codes require at least 5-feet between your hot tub and your home
  3. Prep the site. Hot tubs can weigh well over a ton when full. For that reason, a good foundation is vital. If you don’t have a level space already, a 3-to-4-inch concrete block or spa pad is enough to do the trick.

Getting this groundwork done enables our electricians to provide more efficient, higher quality hot tub wiring services.

Signs Your Hot Tub Needs an Electrician’s Help

If you already have a hot tub, then you don’t have to worry about installation or laying down a block of concrete. But you do have to take some steps to ensure your new investment holds its value. With proper maintenance, your typical hot tub can last 15 or 20 years.
Sometimes, however, something in the electrical system can go awry. Below are some common hot tub issues that many indicate a need for wiring repair:

  • An inoperable control panel
  • Jets that work but water that never heats up
  • Jets that stop working or do so intermittently
  • Flickering lights or lights stuck in an on position
  • A hot tub circuit breaker that trips every time you turn it on.
