Hello frustrated and thank you for your question.

I spoke to Technical Support and they told me that you will need to pull 4 lines (2 hot + 1 neutral + 1 ground) from your home to properly install the Midwest Electric Products 50 Amp 240-Volt 240-Watt Non-Fuse Metallic Spa Panel Disconnect with GFI. The lines will connect to the box and the box connects to the spa. The neutral connects to the neutral bus and the ground connects to the box.

Best wishes on your project.

Hello NoMagyver, I’m Newf from our How-To Community.

This spa panel comes with a 50 amp double pole GFCI breaker installed. The panel main lug limit is 125 amps. Use standard additional GE brand breakers to fill additional needed spaces. You should not need part numbers, GE only makes one style of residential breakers.

Here are more detailed specs on this panel from the GE library:

I hope this helps, Newf.

Hey Linsky,

This is Gregg (@gotogregg) on our How-To Community. Unfortunately you will have to use the knockouts on sides of this panel. Run conduit through the hole in your foundation and have it bend towards the panel and connect it that way. Make sure to seal around the pipe on both sides of the foundation.

Linsky,
There are not knock outs on the back. To maintain the N3R rating we would advise coming through the wall above/below the unit and entering via a hub on the top or from the bottom.
