Hello, wiring errors on a spa can be *fatal.... these circuits need to be ground fault protected, well grounded and *bonded....

If you can send me a photo of the spa wiring diagram I will look it over for you. However, that said, it would be a very good idea to call in a very experienced electrician who does pool and spa installations.

To attach photo's use the 'attach files' link to the left of your send button.

If you need help finding a pool/spa qualified electrician tell me which direction you are from the center of the nearest city and I will get you a short list of the best rated ones.
