    I am in British Columbia, Canada. I got my 60 amp breaker, 80 feet of 6/3 teck, 60 amp GFCI spa pack... everything figured out, until I noticed this little rule. What is the definition of a barrier to prevent contact? People seem to mention a wall or fence. The perfect location for my spa pack...

I'm trying to figure out what is going to be the best way\ type of wire to use. So far, I think I am going to use ent out of the panel and into the attic, take that to the...

    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, I have a 29 year old aquaglass jetted bath spa that has touch control (like a touch lamp) to turn on/off. Spa pump will not turn on anymore. When I last tried to use it, the pump came on for a few seconds when I turned on the main power switch, but did not touch the on/off control...

    Just trying to get a clear picture on how to connect to spa after conduit comes out of ground. I was thinking a LB with some flex liquidtight. not sure if there is a code for if a lb has to be a certain height off the ground or if I will need to fasten down the flex line to the top of the deck...

    I want to apologize in advance if this is too detailed or wandering. I am in the midst of installing a new and I think I have the details straight but thought that a double check with you guys (experts) would be wise. The hot tub is a Sundance Optima and is in Marin county California, purchased...

    Hello, Thanks to the freezing weather I had to have a spa repairman out to work on the hot tub. The repairman said that the wiring to the spa does not meet code. While unusual, I can't find anything that indicates it does not. The spa was wired in 15 years ago. This was definitely the cheaper...

    Hi all, I need some advice on repairing my crumbling (ugly) spillover wall in my pool. The wall separates the spa and the main pool. I had this problem (although not to this extend) a few years back when tiles were falling off and some small cracks appearing and even though I am not a stranger...

    I just moved in this house with a pool. There is a hot tub/spa next to the pool. The pool system is set to circulate every morning and I see water flowing from the hot tub to the pool during that time. I observed a strange phenomenon this afternoon. Between 1PM and 4PM, the spa/hot tub lost its...

    Hi, I have recently purchased a used hot tub that I am going to install on my back patio. I have the 50 amp GFCI disconnect in place, 1-1/4" PVC conduit run to near where the tub connections will be and will transition to 1" liquidtight flexible conduit for the tub entrance all the way to the...

    Howdy folks, I just bought a used hot tub and need to build a foundation for it.. I know I can do concrete and am well versed in the procedure however I think it may just be a little too permanent in the event I eventually want to move it. What I am interested in is understanding what it...

    So my wife and I just closed on a home, and with it comes a hot tub that has laid dormant for 2 years because the home wasn't wired for a hot tub, especially in the area it currently lays. The house is 4 years old, and as you can see from the pictures, the Hot tub I believe requires a 220 box...
