Hot Tub Electrician
Many people are not aware that their existing pool equipment is not safe. Pool equipment can be either a pool pump, pool lights, heater, or even receptacles located with close proximity to pool/spa. One hazard can be these types of equipment are not GFCI protected. A GFCI will trip when it senses leakage current. This leakage current will not be sensed by a regular breaker potentially causing electrocution hazards. Always test your GFCI breaker every month to ensure proper operation. Another hazard can be no emergency shut off button. This button will kill power to all pumps in the event someone gets trapped underneath. It will also energize a strobe/horn to notify others of the situation. Always hire an electrical contractor to wire your pool equipment.+

Hot Tub FAQ
GFCI stands for ground fault circuit interrupter. It is used to prevent electrocution and is a must-have if you own a hot tub or pool. When a GFCI senses a leakage current it will trip, shutting off the electrical components of your pool. All hot tubs and pools should have their electrical components installed with GFCI protection.
