    Is it code for a 220 volt hot tub to have a GFCI protected circuit in California?

    • Dave Rongey says:

      Hi Carlton,
      Yes – A Hot Tub or any type of Sauna, Whirlpool Tub, Pool, or any such equipment that involves water, electricity, people or livestock, is required to have a GFCI protected circuit. Additionally, the installation of the electrical circuit and all associated components must be installed according to applicable codes, with a permit, and inspected, as required by your local building jurisdiction.
      I hope this helps,
      Dave
