Hot Tub Electrical Cords, GFCI Cords and Plugs

A ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) is a device that shuts off an electric circuit when it detects that electric current is flowing along an unintended path (ie. through water or through a person). It is used to reduce the risk of electric shock.

Most hot tubs are powered by a 240 Volt, 50 Amp circuit that should be routed through a breaker with an emergency power-off switch. Since this circuit is in the close proximity of water, it should be a GFCI circuit to prevent electrocution.

We stock quality GFCI cords and cord-ends from Leviton.
