Electrical Question from Keith about Other Electrical Issue
Question: I have a 220 plug in my shop. Just put a hot tub in on the outside of that wall. Do they make a wire connection that I can connect to my hot tub and plug into the shop 220 volt wall outlet?

I would need more specific information about the required circuit for the your specific hot tub, however I will tell you that a typical hot tub requires a dedicated  220 volt 4-wire GFCI circuit.
