Hot Tub Conduit Installation: Call an Expert!
Do you consider yourself a DIY expert? Have you managed to fix up your home’s wiring without relying on professional help? That’s nice, but there’s one job you shouldn’t try on your own: hot tub conduit installation. Getting your hot tub wired is much more dangerous than basic electrical work, and there are several reasons you should call a professional instead.
Here are some reasons you should leave hot tub conduit installation to the experts:
Electricity and water don’t mix.
No matter your DIY skills, electrical work can be dangerous. However, with a hot tub, the danger is much greater. Hot tubs are one of the few commercial electronics that mixes electricity and water. Water is highly conductive and makes electrical shocks deadlier and more likely. Our professionals have the special training required that makes them capable at handling the installation of heavy-duty electronics like hot tubs.
Electrical code considerations
Because hot tubs are so dangerous to install, the National Electrical Code (NEC) has parts pertaining specifically to hot tubs. Electrical codes like the NEC are made to the people who use hot tubs and those who install them stay safe. As well as having the proper training for installing hot tubs, professionals know the ins and outs of the NEC, so they can install your hot tub correctly.
The NEC isn’t the only law to consider when doing a hot tub conduit installation. There are a variety of local codes that pertain to installing hot tubs. Local building and zoning boards want to ensure that hot tub installations are safe, proper, and up to code. Nothing hurts a property’s value like having a major electrical hazard on the property. In addition, some areas also require the installation to be certified by an inspector. Their job is to ensure the installer has their license and isn’t cutting corners in the installation. It may seem like a hassle to some, but the inspection and certification help ensure your hot tub is safe.
