Hot tub wireing


I have a hot tub that requires a 32 amp imput. The cable I have is Teck #10 / 30 amp .The wire will be exposed to the exterior of the house and the climate is approximate - 3 C to - 25 C for 5 month of the year when the hot tub will be running.Question is should I have a 40 amp breaker, I understand that the cable I have is rated for 33 amps.

You should upgrade that to 10mm˛ { # 8 AWG } Tek cable due the 32 amp load and you will need 40 amp breaker and you should have a RCD { GFCI } breaker on it unless the spa have it in there.

And just hang on one of the Canada guys will comfirm this one and I am pretty sure this is correct.

Merci.
