Lately I have been installing alot of new and used spas. When reconnecting used spas I sometimes run across a wiring method where the wires are run in a raceway to the spa enclosure and then it is open wiring to the control box. Most of the time there is a romex connector at the control box. Something doesn't seem right. When I hook up a spa I take a flexable raceway, usually non-metalic, straight to the control box with the appropiate fittings. Are open wires considered concealed in the spa enclosure?

Blessings. Mark

Someone elce will have to quote you the code article here. I never seen that and it sounds like a viloation to me. We use metalic 3/4 sealtite to snake around inside to the control box off a 3/4 pipe feeding it. Pipe is required around here.

What your talking about must be one of those EC I hear about that will hook up a hot tub for $ 250. I tell the customer that just the materials cost about that to do it right. The customer is angry at me cause I am acussed of ripping them off. In the end they get the $250 special (romex and a 2 pole breaker no connectors or GFI's).
