Currently I have:
- Main breaker panel
- Conduit to outdoor socket, GFCI protected
- Onwards connection to next outdoor socket
I'm having a hot tub, currently 115v plugged into the GFCI socket, upgraded to 230v (new 230v pump, existing dual voltage controller/heater). The 115v GFCI socket will be replaced by a 230v GFCI disconnect for spas, with new 6awg 4-wire wiring to the breaker box.
I ordered a 115v spur breaker which (if I understand correctly) will be inside the GFCI disconnect as an optional extra. Can I use that spur to run to the next outdoor socket (#3 above)?
Pump is 10A, heater 22A, GFCI disconnect max 50A.
I know the hot tub has to be hard wired with a dedicated supply but I don't understand if that includes downstream. If not, that's fine, just more work to connect item #3 to a different outdoor circuit.
Side question: how high off the ground does the GFCI disconnect need to be? The current 115v one is only about 18". Distance wise it's about 6ft from the hot tub, line of sight.
It will be inspected; just want to get it right rather than need a repeat inspection.
