Wiring a Hot Tub or Spa

April 28, 2016

The wiring of hot tubs and portable spas is a complex process to comprehend, particularly if you are unaware of the equipment and devices. There are a number of things to contemplate before having your hot tub or spa wired and the person you choose to perform the wiring needs to be reliable. In almost all jurisdictions, the wiring of a hot tub and spa must be completed by a licensed and insured electrical contractor.

Just in case you are not persuaded, here are a few reasons clarifying why the wiring cannot be performed by the owner or an unlicensed professional:

Wiring a hot tub could result in electrocution, if the wiring was performed incorrectly.

If the individual is a professional, but is unlicensed, they are virtually not responsible for any accidents or damages to your hot tub or spa during the wiring process.

Any unlicensed individual who attempts to perform the wiring without a license runs the risk of being fined, or sued for performing the job without a license.

Furthermore, unless you are planning to get your electrician’s license, there is really no reason to spend the time trying to figure it out.

The best advice we can give to a homeowner is do not do this yourself. It can be fatal if you make one wrong  move. Remember, when we're talking about water and electricity, they don't mix.  For hot tub and spa wiring experts call (781-595-7074) J.P.
