Electric Installation – Running the Electric to the Cabinet Print

This instructional guide will aid in the planning/installation associated with Electrical Power provide for the Acrylic Spas.

Most of our acrylic tubs have actually detachable case panels which cover the whole border associated with tub.

Whenever operating the electrical through the spa, the access point to the case doesn’t need become put right during the Control Pack location. Our spas usually do not come built with a hole that is pre-drilled electric so access are through some of the cabinet panels.*

*NOTE: We don’t advise setting up the electric through a case panel that is based in front side a Pump, Control Pack, Blower, or Gate Valve. These panels will probably have to be eliminated at some time for upkeep or servicing.

Selecting a spot

When selecting where you should enter the cabinet, achieve this in line with the after:

  • security (don’t create tripping dangers)
  • looks
  • access points for users to enter the bath tub
  • step positioning
  • cover opening position (bottom mount lifters may have the address remainder low next to the case)
  • address lifter mounts

Producing an Access Aim

A Spade Bit is not recommended since there are no pre-drilled holes, access through the panel is done using a Hole Saw for a clean cut. The perfect location to put a gap when it comes to cord, is three to five ins up through the bottom for the case panel, and four to six ins in through the outside side of the case panel. Take note that the case panels have timber framework and insulating foam inserts. Attempt to avoid drilling through the lumber frame as this may damage the support that is structural lumber provides.

We try not to suggest approaching through the base regarding the spa. Should this be probably the most perfect route then we suggest you are taking into consideration that you’ll never be in a position to slip the bathtub at all.

This could pose a nagging problem if a site technician is needed to access a part associated with tub this is certainly against an obstruction such as for instance a wall surface or deck.

The Control Pack (in which the electric would be linked) is likely to be situated behind one of several case panels straight below your Topside Control Panel (precise location shall differ according to spa model).

There clearly was space that is enough the case to perform the energy cable through the access point out the Control Pack once we usually do not entirely fill the cavity with spray foam. The ability cable will need to go into the Control Pack from the remaining hand part.
