Hot Tub GFCI Breakers
Siemens Hot Tub GFCI Breakers For Hot Tub Bather Protection
A hot tub GFCI breaker, also known as a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter, is a safety device designed to protect against electrical shock. It does this by sensing any imbalance in the electrical current flowing through a circuit and immediately shutting off the power to prevent a potentially dangerous situation. In the context of a hot tub, the hot tub GFCI breaker is typically built into the electrical panel or control panel and is used to protect against ground faults in the electrical system of the hot tub.
The electrical panel, also known as the breaker box or fuse box, is the central hub for the electrical system of a hot tub. It houses the circuit breakers or fuses that protect the hot tub's electrical circuits and components from damage caused by overloading or short circuits. The panel is usually connected to a hot tub spa pack, including the GFCI, other safety devices, and the main power switch. The hot tub GFCI breaker is usually located in a waterproof enclosure, a minimum of 10 feet from the hot tub, to protect it from the wet environment of the hot tub. we strongly recommend that you hire a certified electrician to install your hot tub GFCI breaker and all other electrical circuits for your hot tub.
