Do You Need an Electrical Panel Upgrade for Your Spa?


The power limitations of your home shouldn’t prevent you from owning a hot tub, all-season pool or sauna. Especially when it’s all you’ve been dreaming about.

At Wellness Shop, we have a team of Electrical Partners who specialize in upgrading the electrical service for residential homes.

In fact, they make the entire experience as integrated and straightforward as possible. Not only will they take care of all the arrangements, but they will also keep you informed throughout the process.

200 AMP Service Upgrades Timeline

  1. Our Electrical Partner completes a free, no-obligation quote.
  2. Once the quote has been accepted, our Electrical Partner will submit a request to your hydro provider to have the power disconnected. Disconnecting the power will allow our team to complete the upgrade.
  3. Your hydro provider will perform a site survey to determine if the current electrical service can be successfully upgraded to 200 amps.
  4. After the site survey is complete, the hydro provider will contact our Electrical Partner to set a date to disconnect the power.
  5. Our Electrical Partner will contact you to confirm the date provided by your hydro provider and then schedule the appointment with you to have the panel upgraded.
  6. After your panel has been upgraded, the installation of your hot tub, all-season pool or sauna is often completed the same day.

Not only will our Electrical Partner coordinate and communicate all details to have the job completed, but they will also pull all of the necessary permits and have the work inspected by the ESA. You can enjoy a no-hassle process with guaranteed work.

Frequently Asked Questions About Panel Upgrades

How Much Does a Panel Upgrade Cost?

A standard panel upgrade can range from $1,885 plus HST to $3,500 plus HST. The cost will depend on the type of panel upgrade and whether the new service will be run via overhead wires or underground.

Panel upgrade costs are in addition to the standard electrical services offered with Wellness Shop packages. Our Electrical Partners will provide a detailed quote for you to review and approve before moving forward.

How Long Does It Take to Determine if I Need a Panel Upgrade?

Determining if you need a panel upgrade can be done immediately. However, as a general rule, it takes two business days for our electrical partner to determine if a panel upgrade is required.

Our electrical partner will send you a quote to review and approve before moving forward.

How Long Does It Take to Complete the Panel Upgrade?

How long it takes to complete a panel upgrade can vary depending on several factors. Some factors include your hydro company and how busy they are with current demand in your area. Our Electrical Partner will submit a request to your hydro provider.

It can take anywhere from two to 12 weeks before the hydro company will provide a date for the disconnect to occur and the actual service to be completed.

In some instances, our Electrical Partner can provide temporary service to your wellness product so that you can start enjoying it before your panel upgrade is completed.

Our Electrical Partner will notify you within two business days of hearing from the hydro provider as to when your panel upgrade is to be completed.
