Like your electric dryer, your pool pump, spa, or hot tub require higher voltage outlets than the regular type you see everywhere inside your house. If your home didn’t come with a pool or hot tub already or wasn’t set up for the future installment of a spa, hot tub, or pool, then you need to have a professional electrician install the outlets and wiring for you. Unlike your dryer’s outlet, outlets must be specially grounded since they might be exposed to water.
Wiring and outlet installation for your new hot tub or pool is definitely not something you can do yourself. It takes a highly qualified and specially trained electrician with several years of experience in safely wiring anything involving potential contact between water and electricity. That’s where we here at Day Star Electric can help.
We have over 20 years experience in all types of wiring and other electrical services, including hot tub and pool equipment wiring and installation, so you can rest assured that any wiring we install around water won’t wind up becoming a shocking experience for you, your kids, or your pets.
Our Pool and Hot Tub or Spa Wiring Services Include
- Service Panel Inspection: We need to check if your electrical panel has enough open slots and amperage to accommodate the power requirements for your new pool or hot tub.
- Ensure the Wiring is Correctly Shielded
- Install GFCI – Ground Circuit Interrupters: These shut off all power to the hot tub or pool equipment if there’s a sudden power surge.
- Correct Positioning of Your Hot Tub, Spa, or Pool: They need to be the correct, safe distance from electrical and communication cables.
With all the dangers involved with installing electrical components so close to water, when you’re putting in a pool, spa, or hot tub, it’s imperative you call us. Don’t risk grave injury to yourself and don’t trust just any electrician. Hot tub and pool equipment installation require additional training on top of regular certifications most electricians must have.
