IMPORTANT: Electrical service will vary
depending on what options your Walk-In Tub has.
If your tub is
equipped with Hydrotherapy or Wet Pump: You will
need to either tie into an existing home circuit
(after you make sure there is room for more
amperage,) or you may want to add an additional
breaker in the home’s load center. You must use a
GFCI outlet or breaker on the circuit for the tub
rated for 15 amps. (The amperage for the
Hydrotherapy Pump is 5 amps.)
A tip from the pros:
Install a regular 15 amp outlet by the pump. Then
wire that outlet to the load side of a GFCI blank
outlet which should be located in a convenient spot,
so that it can be tested and reset. (Suggestion:
unfinished side of basement or nearby wall, etc.)
If your tub is
equipped with a Recirculation Heater: The
recirculation heater option requires its own
dedicated 20 amp circuit, which must be directly
to a GFCI breaker.

“Air Switch” box.
5. After you have
completed these steps, you may now plug the “Air
Switch” into your dedicated 20 amp outlet. It should
be hooked up so that when the Air button is pressed,
the heater and pump will run at the same time.

A tip from the
pros: Use a dry cut diamond blade in a
