I need to gather some more information from you in order to help.
Is the spa functioning without those two wires being connected?Let me know so that we may continue.
In the spa are there terminals for the two extra wires? They would be labelled 110V.
Also how is it that you are in this situation? Did you just purchase the spa and have existing wiring??
Just so I understand, you have connected the two 120V wires?
If the spa has connections for 220V (3 wires + ground) and 110V (2 wires + ground) then yes, the two wires need to go to a single pole GFI breaker.
Ok, on those Hot Springs models, you typically would have a 2 Pole 50A breaker in your house panel going out to a subpanel near the tub with two breakers in it. A 2 pole 20A and a 2 pole 30A. Both breakers ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO BE GFI.
So to answer your question, the two wires a 220V and would go to a 2 pole 20A GFI breaker.
Do not install this spa without GFI breakers.CLICK HERE for a diagram.
