Default Quick spa panel question to potentially save me hours of research.

Is this the control panel out of a hot tub that you guys are using? I see hot tubs in my area fairly regularly for free due to broken pumps, "been sitting a long time," etc. Could I just go grab one of those to use for an electric keggle?

No. It isn't the panel that controls the jets.

It is an electrical supply panel that is wired into your house. Think of the cord that feeds the hot tub. Follow it back to the house, and that's where you'd find one of these. I'm mobile, but I'll try to find a link.

Yes as said above, the spa panel is part of the homes wiring...someone getting rid of a tub will not likely want you to take the spa panel.

Like I said, saved me lots of research about spa panels. And I'm terrible and finding things like that. Thanks.
