ELECTRICAL requirements

32AMP SUPPLY

If the chosen hot tub is a 32amp model then it will be necessary to contact a certified electrician to arrange for the installation of the electrics. 

This consists of the following:

  • Rotary isolation switch
  • 6mm armoured cable (size to be confirmed by electrician)
  • 32amp breaker to fuse box
  • Additional parts as required
The Isolator must be within 2-5meters of the hot tub and have another armoured cable connected from the isolator with at least 5 meters of cable or at least enough cable to reach the other side of the hot tub to allow our engineers to put the 3 wires into the hot tub PCB.
