Electrical Work for Hot Tubs
There are two types of electrical connections that hot tubs run on, 110V/15AMPS and 220V/50AMPS. Hot tubs that run on 110V/15AMPS are referred to as “plug and play” hot tubs. Hot tubs that run on 220V/50AMPS are referred to as “hard wired” hot tubs. Hard wired hot tubs are generally designed to operate best because all of the equipment can run simultaneously, and they usually feature a larger heater which can heat the water much faster than plug and play hot tubs. Hot tubs require higher amperage circuits if they have multiple jets pumps or multiple heaters. It is important when installing a hot tub to work with a licensed electrician to ensure that all electrical connections are done correctly and are in compliance with the National Electrical Code (NEC) as well as any local and state electrical codes.

Electrical Work for Pools
Electrical work, in general, can be dangerous, but electrical work around pools can be especially dangerous as electrical safety is more important in places where water is involved. Pool electrical work that is done incorrectly can put both the person installing the electrical work at risk as well as put anyone using the pool at risk. Similar to most other parts of the home, swimming pools require electricity. Elements such as lights, pumps, automatic pool covers, some cleaning equipment and more require power, which means electricity and electrical work is needed. Bonding and grounding are two essential electrical safety tasks that need to be performed on pools. Without proper bonding and grounding you run the risk of electric shock when using your pool.
