Let me know what he says. Don't want to have a panel I can't use!

What questions do you have about wiring up the spa panel?

None, just which he would prefer if he were doing it.

If it is the same spa panel as the HD one, in working order, it should be fine to use.

I just bought one from the site. The reviews from recent on HD seem good. The reviews from 2010 and earlier are questionable but worth the chance IMO.

My understanding is that it offers gfci protection. the "non fused" means that it doesn't provide overcurrent protection. That means its fine to use it down line of a properly sized breaker for gfci protection. not okay to yank it out and use it in your house panel.

Just ordered one.

Next I'll order the 30a panel breaker and I'll be set.

CoalBreaker, are you putting the 30a breaker in your main house panel to run the 50a spa panel off of?
