6 guage wire and hot tubs
I just bought the hot tub. Of course the salesman says we can wire it ourselves. I am leaving the actual hook-ups to the electrician but I ran the 6 (3 wires plus ground) gauge copper wires myself. The electrician will have to connect it to the breaker box, the GFI disconnect box, and the spa. After I found out that the GFI disconnect had to be no less than 5 feet "within sight", I relocated the box. Now the line from the disconnect box to the spa is about 4 feet too short. Can this be spliced together so I don't have to go out and buy yet another 25 feet of $2.50 wire and re-run it in the PVC conduit? I would like to know before I actually schedule the electrician to come out.
