I reviewed some other questions - none of them seemed to be similar enough to consider.
I am planning on using an electrician for this upgrade and want to be able to explain to him on the phone our needs. We're out in the country and I'd like to have a much info for him before he visits.
We are getting a new hot tub which needs 220V/60 amp service. As part of our recent remodel, we already ran heavy gauge wire which we were told was big enough for the circuit - I don't think this part will be an issue and I'm sure the electrician will verify - I think it's at least 6 gauge my even be 4.
Our current master breaker box has a 220 outlet with dual pole 30 amp breakers which was used for a shop air compressor previously. The plan is to connect the hot tub to this breaker (with the new wire of course).
We need to replace this breaker with one that fits the needs of the hot tub. From a replacement perspective, is this as "simple" as replacing the current dual pole 30 amp with a 60 amp breaker?
I know when the electrician comes, he'll make sure it's done properly, but I'm trying to get an idea of the complexity.
