Question: What voltage do you need for a hot tub?

All hot tubs require electricity. Regular hot tubs run on 110 volts, while an electrical hot tub runs on 220 volts. Electrical hot tubs will provide more power to the hot tubs heater and jets. People say “regular” simply because with a 110v hot tub, you can plug it into your normal outlet.

Are hot tubs 120 or 240?

110V (115V or 120V) hot tubs are often called Plug and Play, because most can be plugged into a standard 15 amp electrical outlet. 220V (230V or 240V) tubs are hard-wired from the home main circuit breaker box, to a safety cut-off box located near the hot tub, and then directly into the spa control box.
