I am looking into wiring a used hot tub. In the instructions it says that I need less than 100 feet of wrie between the main service panel and the sub-panel. This isn't possible in this application. I would like to know if it's ok to go over 100', or what I need to do so that this can be done.

Anything is possible but it would be beneficial to know more about the distance of the run you intend to make. Also, how big is the service on your house?

hello dan,
what has hapened here is that the voltage drop for the size wire they state in the instructions is maxed out at 100'. what u will need to do is increase your wire size by 1 size this will gaine u some distance. (example if instructions say #12 wire use #10). if u will give me the distance from panel and the amp draw of the tub ill tell u what wire size 2 use.
