Hot Tubs come in a variety of sizes and power ratings from varying from 13 amp to 45 amp and more, I find the most popular by far is the 16 amp connection.
I would advise against the cheaper 13 Amp plug in type though as they do have a tendency to 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 them hard wired with a weather proof isolator, as the manufacturers all specify.
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 protection from any possible electrical fault.
Its always advisable to have an RCD that is separate from the rest of the property to avoid any nuisance tripping and we will always do this if it is feasible.
This is notifiable work and the job will be certified and notified to building control in accordance with the Electrical Regulations, without this manufacturers may not honour a warranty claim.
I would recommend HotSpring World Hot Tubs
