You have to be very careful when choosing the electrical circuits for spa and hot tubs. Remember that you will be using electrical components like heaters and water jets in the tubs and it becomes very important to provide proper protection for the electrical circuits. Otherwise, any leakage or surge can harm the people inside the tub and this can cause severe damage in a very short duration. You have to understand that surges can happen in milliseconds and you will have absolutely no control over the effect once the circuits crash in a bad way. The only way to prevent this casualty is to choose the appropriate protection devices for such units. There are standard guidelines prescribed by the authorities with regards to installing the appropriate circuits for spas and hot tubs. Let us look into them in a detailed manner.
