    Default Spa Power

    Hey guys,
    Ive got a bit of an odd situation here... I bought a spa second hand and Ive hooked it all up to my old pool circuit but the spa heater doesnt have a plug on the end.
    According to the manual it is single phase but says that it is 25amps. The highest plug Ive found is a 15amp and it just doesnt seem to add up to me. The wires are the the flat twin and earth cables which also dont fit a standard plug.
    Is it just that its late at night and I cant think properly, or does something not add up?
    Cheers,
    M.

    Possibly the spa was originally hard wired into an isolation switch?

    Yep.........it'll have been hardwired into a 25amp circuit.....just like your average electric oven. Time to call a sparky!!
