Pool & Hot Tub: Installation Pre-Planning

Once you have an idea of the type of pool or spa you’ll be purchasing, give us a call. We’ll send out one of our licensed electricians to take a look at your specific project and provide you with a guaranteed price for the electrical wiring and installation. After the pool or spa is installed, we’ll return to complete the electrical installation and arrange for an inspection by your local building department.

Planning For Installation

Some hot tubs run on 120-volt circuits while more efficient tubs require 240-volt circuits. Regardless of what hot tub you choose, hire an electrician to ensure your service panel is large enough to support the dedicated circuit and required amperage which can vary from a 20-amp, 120-volt circuit to a 60-amp, 240-volt circuit. Both circuits require a ground fault circuit interrupter and a separate electrical disconnect at least five feet away from the hot tub, unless your hot tub comes with a built-in disconnect.

Warning! If you’re considering doing some electrical work on your home, please heed this word of caution. Working on your electrical system can be extremely hazardous if you don't have proper experience and expertise. Electrical work is NOT for the novice do-it-yourselfer. While it’s certainly possible for an amateur to add an outlet or replace a light switch with a dimmer switch, doing much more probably means hiring a licensed electrician. We want you to be safe! Please give us a call and we would love to help.
