Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to commonly asked questions

How much does hot tub installation cost?
Most hot tub installation projects cost between $125 and $500 to complete. Costs may vary depending on how much prep work is needed and whether your hot tub is located indoors or outdoors. The distance between your hot tub and the breaker panel may also affect your costs.
How long does hot tub installation take?
It usually takes a qualified electrician between 6-8 hours to complete a hot tub installation project. Always have your pro inspect the wiring before they leave your home to prevent any safety issues.
Why should I hire a pro to wire a hot tub, spa or jacuzzi?
Electrical wiring for a hot tub, spa or jacuzzi is complicated and needs to be installed according to local codes to ensure safety. A qualified electrician can ensure your spa is installed properly to eliminate any chance of electrocution or potential fire hazards.
What type of wiring will be used in my hot tub installation?
Your spa panel must be installed no less than 5 feet from your new hot tub. This distance is needed to prevent possible electrocution risks. Power and wiring requirements for hot tubs vary depending on their size. For installation, most spa panels require either a 50 or 60-amp, 220-240-volt ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) or a 15-amp, 120-volt GFCI.

Hot Tub Installation

Installing a hot tub, spa or jacuzzi can be an exciting but challenging project. Before installation, you need to consider both your local building codes and the electrical requirements of the unit. Unless you’re installing a replacement spa at a prepared site, you may need need to add a dedicated circuit to your electrical panel, with a GFCI-protected outlet or subpanel located near the new spa. This work typically requires a building permit and should only be completed by a licensed and insured electrician.

A qualified electrician has the know-how to wire your new hot tub or spa. Before getting started, they will pull the necessary permits to complete the installation. Once completed, your pro will test your new tub to make sure it is safe and operational before you ever step in it.

The duration and cost of your installation will vary depending on the location of your new spa and how difficult it is to set up the new circuit. Your pro will give you a detailed estimate after looking at your electrical panel and considering the specifications of your installation.
