Are you considering a new hot tub or swim spa? Then you are going to need electricity.

But properly installing electrical for your spa tub should be left to a licensed and insured electrician who has a strong understanding of the National Electric Code pertaining to hot tubs and swim spas, as well as proper training.

In this video, Master Spas swim spa specialists Ben Gilliam and Mari Cuticelli share their pro tips for making sure the spa is properly hooked up.

People who are planning for a new spa might have questions about how to hook-up a hot tub or swim spa.

Is there enough room in my electrical panel? Most homes will have room in their panel for the 50-amp/240V service that most spas require. However, you might have to "clean" up the breaker.

How much does it cost to run electrical to a hot tub or swim spa? This question is tricky to answer. The total cost varies on your installation, price of materials, where you live, and your electrician.

How do I hire the best electrician? When planning for the spa hook-up, it's important to make sure that the electrician is familiar with hot tubs and swim spas. You can direct your electrician to the electrical diagrams, which are available on Master Spas website.

Why is the breaker to my hot tub tripping? One of the common problems is that the spa was wired incorrectly. Take a picture of your panel box and send it to the service rep at your Master Spas retailer. The service rep will be able to see whether there is a wiring issue.
