Wiring in Hot Tub


What about the rest of the project? wire size, codes on wiring a tub, required disconnect means, wiring methods, etc.

It's a four wire feed to a disconnect or spa panel, then a four wire feed to the tub(Or a three wire if it's a 240V only tub). If you don't know this then you really shouldn't be wiring a hot tub.

That's right inside the control box cover or in the instructions.
It's the rest of the job that's important and the is NO "diagram" for that.

PLEASE hire a pro. This is no place to mess around if you don't know what you are doing!
