Hot Tubs come in a variety of shapes, sizes and power ratings varying from 13 amp to 45 amp ratings and more, I find the most popular by far is the 16 amp rating for Hot Tub electrical installation.
I would advise against the cheaper 13 Amp plug in type though as they do have a tendency to draw the full 13 amp and burn out the plug they are connected to as they are pulling sufficient current to be on the limits of what the socket is designed to take.
Its always best to have your Hot Tub hard wired with a weather proof rotary isolator, as the manufacturers all specify, this means you can easily disconnect it for maintenance or if a fault should develop.
We are experienced in these installations and can offer competitively priced connections following the instructions provided from the manufacturers. This is always using a dedicated circuit directly from your fuse board / consumer unit and using an appropriate RCD device to give you the correct level of protection from any possible electrical fault.
Its always advisable to have your Hot Tub wired through an RCD device that is separate from the rest of the property to avoid any nuisance tripping to the rest of the house, and we will always do this for your Hot Tub electrical installation if it is feasible.
These installations are notifiable and the job will be certified and building control informed in accordance with the Electrical Regulations, without this manufacturers may not honour a warranty claim.
