ine from the breaker box to see if that solves the problem. The instruction
s manual says designated 20 amp line not a shared 20 amp line. It did ran f
ine when I removed the GFI breaker and put in a regular 20 amp breaker. But
that is not the proper or Safeway to run the hot tub, so that is why I'm g
oing to run the designated 20 amp line to the hot tub to see if all my prob
lems will go away. Good luck with yours
It's tripping because of something going on with the SPA heater circuit
and whether something else is on the circuit or not isn't your problem.
I assume you also disconnected any other load on that circuit.
They tell you it needs a dedicated 20A circuit because those 120V spas
take just about all of 20A. Really it needs a 240V circuit to work
right, ie heat up quickly, be able to run the heater and pump on high, etc.
But people like to buy the 120V ones because they think they can just
plug them in. When you need a 120V dedicated circuit anyway, might as
well make it a 240A, 40A and have a spa that works right.
