Again, hot tub installations are considered to be one of the most dangerous electrical jobs. This is because water, heat, and electricity do not mix well. But, with a skilled electrician, the product is a luxurious spa add-on to any home.
Hot tub wiring should always follow The National Electrical Code. There is a specific section about hot tub installations that requires regulatory safety standards to be met. It is very important to follow the NEC codes and any local codes closely when bringing power to a hot tub.
