Wiring Matters recommends that 'Persons involved in the design of the electrical installation for a hot tub should consult the product standard
BS EN 60335-2-60: Specification for safety of household and similar appliances........'

I have bought this at £139.20 inc VAT (not being a member) only to find that it constantly refers to Part 1. Which, not to put too fine a point on it, I find a little defecatious........should I be justified in this feeling? Should I not expect to be able to see the whole standard at that price?

Yours squelchily

So have you learnt anything from your newly acquired expensive reference material?

You have referenced the article that I referred to; I am asking why this document is required since (for all practical purposes where electrical installation is concerned) the standard references Part 1 which I do not have. Consequently, I am asking for my cash back.

This is fairly common for standards. Part 1 normally contains the general rules with a subsequent part just covering the specifics for that particular item

Whilst trying not to rub salt in the wound there is a DC version of this and part 1 out which means a new version is fairly well advanced to the point it's at Draft Comment stage.

I would doubt if you will get your money back, particularly if it was a pdf, but on the off chance you do, you could get the DC versions for £20 each, that will give you a better idea of where the standard is going

Thank you CMD3PK - my ignorance I guess. I just thought that as Wiring Matters had pointed to it as a crucial document when considering hot tub electrical installation then there would be a substantial amount of information in it - that aspect is sadly misleading and should be a warning to others. I'll let you know how I get on. The fact that I do not have Part 1 means that the part I have bought is useless.

Is there actually a relevant BS or EN standard for hot tubs or is Is it still being prepared?
