    I'm running a line for a new sub panel for an outdoor hot tub. The company (Hot Springs) provides the sub panel with GFCI breakers (20 & 30 amps). I have a main panel with Eaton BR AFCI breakers in a newly built home. Do I need a 50amp AFCI breaker in the main panel if I have GFCI breakers...

    Hello, I'm a total rookie at pouring concrete. Friday was my first time doing this. So far so good, I think. I realize there is already a cold weather thread. If the mods believe this should be merged into that they can go ahead and do so. Concrete Pour Notes: Goal: Create a strong slab base...

    This hottub has a 240V 4 wire 15amp circuit, and a 120volt 20amp circuit. The wiring had been installed all directly on the floor in a spot where water was dripping on it. It also had improper circuit breakers that would have only knocked out one of the phases of the 240V. We put the wires in...

    This hot tub is old (16 years), but well maintained, and is in an area that doesn't freeze (S.F. Bay Area). It has a hose for an ozone generator that leads to a jet near the bottom, and presumably a venturi that sucks air, with ozone, through this tube to dissolve it in the water. The problem...

    Hello all! I have a few questions about electrical... First of all I have expanded my old deck to include a little more square feet to the lower deck and a new pergola where my hot tub is now sitting. When I moved my 220 volt hot tub, I moved it approximately 25 feet away from the box it...

    I have a '90 Thermo-Spa Townhouse hot tub. Over the years I have repaired most everything on it so it is running fine. But the cabinet is rotting away bad. I would like to start rebuilding the cabinet. As a starter, since the bottom board is all rotted away, I was wondering if I can support the...

    From my meter my service goes to an outside 200a disconnect switch before entering my house to the main panel. I am hoping this is a straight-forward yes or no answer :smile: My question is can I come off of this disconnect switch to a Eaton Type BR 50 Amp Spa Panel?? From this I will...

    Hi, I'm new, but it looks like there's good advice to be had here from members. I'm working on the early stages (excavation) of what will be a paver patio in our back yard.
