You must have gfci protection since the power is going to the shower and you don't want anyone to get electrocuted. You can either use a gfci breaker or you can install a regular gfci outlet between the panel and the shower. The outlet will be a cheaper solution to the issue.

What cable is needed to supply a 9.5kw elecric shower


9500 watts is a lot of watts ... are you sure this is what is required?

Also missisng is the voltage you will be using.

Typically, a circuit of 120 volts at 20 amps is 2400 watts while 240 volts at 20 amps is 4800 watts. Either circuit would run on number 12 wire protected by a 20 amp breaker (single or double pole). You want to service a 10,000 watt load.

I am not a electrical engineer ... I think you should review the material that came with your shower and follow the manufacturers recommendation. Please read on ...

Number 8 wire should be good for 50 amp capacity. 50A X 240V = 12,000 watts. However, the distance the wire must run is also a consideration.

If this were my installation, I would beef the wire up to the next size. i.e., if the manufacturer says #8 wire, I would use #6 wire

Other things you should consider is whether the installation requires a GFI or other special breaker and special shut off switch and its location.

I hope to have steered you in the proper direction ...

Thanks for using FixYa.com

I want to install a new shwer head fixture. I am having difficulty removing the ball joint adapter. any ideas?


You have to remove the whole pipe going into the wall, the ball is not seperate. Use a pipe wrench or something similar to remove it. A new showerhead pipe needs teflon tape wrapped clockwise on the threads and screwed into the fitting inside the wall. Now you can install any shower head you want.

Jacuzzi will not turn on..........is it the Acri-touch switch


1) check the GFCI breaker also where the motor plugs into. 2) check the plug to the motor is good 3) then check to hear a click when the air switch is pressed.
If still problem and no motor, then it is the motor itself.

Ariel 701 wiring


I have the same tub and had a similar issue. We originally connected a 12guage with 20 amp circuit breaker and breaker kept trippin. The solution was to connect 10guage wire with a 30 amp breaker. Connect that to a gfi then connect the 12 guage wire coming out of the generator to the gfi (woulda made sense to just have 10g coming out but it was made in China). Being that theres only a short lead coming out of the generator its fine to run 10gauge, just make sure there connected seperately to a gfci breaker. The pump is fine 12 guage 20 amp.

Need electrical schematic for Ariel 701 steam show/jacuzzi tub


What I recommend to you is to contact a supplier that handles these units. They might be able to contact the vendor for the product to try and get more info for you. To be honest, I think your electrician is being a little unreasonable. I would consider finding another electrician. I realize he doesn't want to miswire something and then have to replace it but it would take a complete knuckle head to mess up the wiring on a motor. My opinion though!

Electric shower is not getting hot


Locate your electrical panel box, find the breaker for the water heater, turn it off then back on, locate the water heater. Fins the powere disconect. Sometimes they are a simple pull disconect or switch, sometimes they are another breaker or fuse.

Check the fuses or flip the breaker if aplicable.
