: I live in the Northeast and I am watching all the different areas that
: have lost power. I was wondering is there a way to connect a
: generator to your spa, when its directly connected to the GCIF box
: with a 240 line. My spa has a continuous running circulation pump
: running on a 1 horse power pump.Im lucky I haven't had a power
: failure, but what if?
It would not be a cheap generator to get 240v and probably 50 amp...
But yes you can hook it up just like you could hook one up to your house.
You could buy a disel generator that would supply 240v and enough power to run your heater and circulating pump to save some money. So you couldnt use the jets while the generator was running it but then i suppose you could still sit in the warm water or better yet just let it stay warm and not freeze :P
in a quick google search it looks like somewhere around $1000 for that size generator.
