Need help rigging 30 amp


First of all few of us are electrician in this part of fourm and you have to understand the safety in here we will only give you the correct advise in here.

So please heed our warning and rules we know this stuff due we deal with the codes { rules } everyday for many years

In USA side the parallel cable are allowed only larger than 1/0 the only extempt is from factory wiring

Ditto in France where I am living and anything larger than 50mm˛ { pretty close to # 1/0 conductor size }

KBsparky have one good soluation is use the transfomer otherwise exchange the steam unit.

Of course you will need this unit to be GFCI protected.

Merci,
Marc

Something about the word "rigging" scares me when used in conjunction with electricity.

My question is "who screwed up"? How can you have a tub that will not work with your existing electrical supply. Someone made a serious mistake or the tub was gift?

Maybe they walked in a showroom, spotted one they liked and said, " I want one of these".

Someone still is responsible for the mistake. Someone dropped the ball and should be responsible to make it right.

Fellow electricians .... something ain't right boys .....

Now .. I don't proclaim to be the expert on jacuzzi shower installation but bear with me a second.

Most jacuzzi showers that I am familiar with require 240 volts if 3000 watts ...Speedy picked this up immediately.

I have never seen a straight 3000 watt single circuit 120 volt jacuzzi .. so me is thinking the op is not understanding the electrical specifications of his jacuzzi shower .. or maybe it is not a shower with steam generator but a whirlpool jacuzzi.

Like JV I'm wondering how the electrical to this jacuzzi was not installed correctly or maybe it is the existing wiring to some other bath appliance that was removed.

I would like to see a link to his jacuzzi manufacturer with his model number so we can check electrical specifications.

As for his other 'rigging' suggestions ... how do people think like that when friends and family are going to use that jacuzzi ..?????
