Customer Question
Can you answer Canadian electrical...
Can you answer Canadian electrical code questions? I am installing a Jacuzzi corner tub (7.5A motor). Do I need a separate breaker circuit, or can I come off of load side on my shaver GIFC outlet? Can I install an outlet GIFC or normal for that Jacuzzi pump, or do I need to cut off plug and wire it in direct as I was told by renovation supplier. If I need a separate GIFC circuit on a separate breaker. I would prefer to use a slim breaker as all are on my Siemens panel, with a GFIC outlet. with provided plug instead of using up a 2 slim breaker spaces for 1 regular fat GIFC breaker.
