New Hot Tub Fuse and Wiring Portable Hot Tub

Postby Statto33 » Sun Jun 28, 2020 9:32 am

I previously had a bit tub professionally wired direct to the fuse box which is on a 32 amp fuse and is RCD protected. I have now purchased a new portable plug and play hot tub which has a 13 amp fuse. Can I cut off the plug and wire directly to the original box outside connected to the fuse box? Would I need to change the fuse box fuse to 13 amps?

Hi statto33
Get an external weatherproof socket fitted supplied from your existing fuse box.

Get an external weatherproof socket fitted supplied from your existing fuse box. You may need to replace the existing mcb with a 16A one.
