More in Plumbing
Hot tubs are fixtures often found in new homes and if you don't have one, they can be purchased from many suppliers. They can be totally self contained-which makes for ease of installation, or can be bought as parts that must be placed and connected to make the completed unit. Buying as parts allows the homeowner to integrate the unit into the outdoor landscaping more fully, but a self-contained unit means quick and easy installation and that you can be soaking in it almost immediately.
Plumbing in a Hot Tub
The plumbing for a hot tub is totally self-contained, although you will have to connect it up to your home's water supply and drain.
Connecting to the power supply
The electrical connection is normally by a 120-volt supply that must be on a dedicated circuit and must be grounded with a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter.
