: I have a 6 person spa that has a 4,500 watt heater for the unit. The hot
: tub with heat, ozonator and circulation pump needs about 6,500 watts
: from my testing. I am worried about long power-outages with freezing
: temperatures and am wondering if a generator would be good insurance?
: My plan would be to hook up a transfer switch for the house, then at
: night transfer to another switch to run the hot tub. I am looking at
: a 15,000 watt generator with a 240V 50amp outlet similar to the
: circuit breaker for the tub. I am worried about the electronics on a
: hot tub being very delicate that they will not handle the cycles of a
: generator. Am I on the right track? Has my idea got a lot of merit or
: am I just an extremely worried hot tub owner? Any replies would be
: greatly appreciated.
