As tempting as it might be, never try to wire your own hot tub. It’s incredibly dangerous and can lead to a tripped circuit, or short-circuiting. After all, wiring is risky, to begin with, and hot tubs add water to the equation. So, don’t attempt to do your own. Instead, rely on a professional electrician. We promise it’ll save you an awful lot of headaches and maybe even a trip to the hospital or morgue!

Additionally, there are incredibly specific local codes and guidelines that you must follow whenever wiring a hot tub. You have to hard-wire the hot tub into a ground fault circuit interrupter, or a 60-amp dedicated circuit. Furthermore, you must have an electrical inspector inspect every aspect of your installation before powering on your hot tub or filling it with water.

Rather than deal with all that headache and potential danger yourself, why not hire us? Remember, when it comes to fast, reliable, and affordable hot tub wiring in Minneapolis you can always count on us!

Hot Tub Wiring Mistakes

When homeowners try their hand wiring and electrical hot tub, they inevitably run into a handful of issues. These are some of the most DIY wiring mistakes.

Tripping Breakers

When homeowners attempt to wire their own tub, they often run into issues when they try to turn it on. If the circuit breaker trips whenever you turn on your hot tub, there may be moisture in the wiring or the wiring may not have been installed correctly. A professional electrician will ensure that your new hot tub is as safe as possible.

NO GFCI Protection

A licensed electrician can ensure that your tub has a functioning ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) and is appropriately grounded. Without these safeguards, people using the hot tub could experience shocks or fatal electrocution.

Bonding and Waterproofing Mistakes

Outdoor electrical components should be adequately weatherproofed, and this is particularly true of systems that come into regular contact with water. Each wire and metal component needs to be properly insulated, waterproofed, and bonded to the rest of the system.

Wiring Hot Tubs in Minneapolis St. Paul FAQ

How much does it cost to wire a hot tub?

There is no standard answer because the cost can vary based on your home’s electrical system. In older Twin Cities homes, electricians encounter issues with tripping breakers or a lack of GFCI outlets. The wiring can cost several hundred dollars in parts, plus conduit and fittings.

How much power does a hot tub need?

Most spas operate on a dedicated circuit of 50 or 60 amps at 230 volts. To connect a hot tub to this circuit, an electrician must integrate your home’s main circuit breaker with a 50 or 60-amp breaker in the external disconnect box. The GFCI will correspond with the house breaker so that a 60A GFCI is paired with a 60A house breaker. Whether you need 50A or 60A depends on the number and size of pumps in your hot tub.
