Power Supply for a Air Jet Massage Bathtub


By Dave Rongey - Summary:

Electrical Circuit requirements and the GFCI Protection for Hydro Massage and Air Jet Bathtubs

Providing Safe Power for an Air Jet Bathtub

Question: I am in the process of installing a new slipper tub in my bath.
The blower with the unit is an air blower (not a pump) and it is rated at 400 watts.
Am I correct in assuming that I do not need a dedicated circuit since this is 4 amps and can be wired into a simple lighting circuit?

This electrical question came from: Steve, a Homeowner from Springfield, Virginia.

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question Steve.
