Thanks for your replies. All this time I assumed it was more clear but now I'm not sure. Bill, I thought 680-22 was refurring to lighting, recepticles and other equipment. It is not hard to be sure I install the disconnect at least 5' from the spa but now that brings up another question. 680-42 permits the use of flexible connections not to exceed 6'. That only leaves 1' left to connect to the spa. The only thing left to do is to connect using shed 40 and convert to flex once inside the spa surround. Either way it is not that big an issue to change the location of the disconnect. I will discuss this with the inspector anyway. Thanks for your thoughts.
