electrician to install 220 wiring for a hot tub 20' from the breaker box?

I need the cost to install 220 wiring for a hot tub about 20' from the breaker box with pushomatic breakers in it. I dont know if i need conduit but i will need a gfic. the last estimate was almost $2,000.00. I dont think i need to rewire my whole house. Price sounds a little steep!

IF you attempting to add additional circuits to a pushOmatic breaker system,

you may be looking at more than adding 2 additional circuits .

As memory recalls , pushOmatic breakers and thier associated systems have been replaced and are NO LONGER available .


Most instances where we encounter pushOmatic systems with problems

the system gets replaced , overhauled , up dated with NEW Panel , meter box , service entrance cable and a NEW grounding system. This is known as a Service Change

Service changes can result in charges ranging from $ 1500-$5500.00 depending on

local requirements.



If the wiring cannot be concealed behind the wall, conduit is REQUIRED !

You seem to have several postings of this question - here are a couple of answers answers on one of your other posted questions -

http://answers.angieslist.com/how-hot...

Until you find out if this is only an added circuit, demands a separate circuit breaker box because you current one cannot handle the added capacity (which is common for large hot tubs, saunas, and pools), requires an overall household distribution system capacity upgrade, or needs a total service capacity and panel upgrade for this use, you will not know whether you are looking at the $1000, 1500, 2000, or $3000+ range for likely reasonable cost.

You need to find out what scope of work they are talking (and all bids should be to the same scope of work), and whether there are any required safety upgrades that are contributing to the cost.

BTW - $2000 will not rewire any but pretty small ranch houses with open crawlspace or basement joists or open attic - more common to see $4-8,000 range for a whole house rewire and box replacement.
