The electrical connections to the Digital Equipment Pack must be wired in accordance with all applicable, local electrical codes, and a licensed electrician must perform all electrical work.
The hot tub must be installed at least 1.5m (5ft) from all metal surfaces unless each metal surface is permanently connected by a minimum No.6 AWG solid copper conductor to the equipment “Bonding Lugs”.
1) Install a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) in the power supply panel.
It is mandatory that your hot tub and equipment be protected by a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter).
This must be a dedicated circuit with no other outlets or appliances on the same line as the hot tub equipment. The GFCI should be tested monthly or in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
2) Run the appropriate wire from the main power supply panel in the approved conduit to the hot tub. Your hot tub pack should require a three wire electrical service, plus ground (Line 1-black, Line 2-red, Neutral-white, Ground-green). The wire should not be less than a #8/3, wired directly into a GFCI in the main electrical panel box or in a sub panel box close to the main panel.
3) Attach the power wires to the terminal block inside the hot tub pack. Refer to the wiring diagram inside the hot tub equipment enclosure.
Note: A connector marked “Ground" is provided within the control box. To reduce the risk of electrical shock, connect this connector to the grounding terminal of the electrical service panel with a continuous copper wire, equivalent in size to the conductors supplying this equipment. Bonding lugs are also provided on the equipment pack to connect a minimum No. 6 AWG solid copper conductor between the hot tub and any metal surfaces that are closer than 1.5 m (5ft.) to the hot tub.
4) Complete the conductor connections at the GFCI.
