Any licensed electrician will correctly wire your hot tub.
Most require a 50 Amp GFI circuit.
MAKE SURE A PERMIT IS TAKEN AND THE JOB INSPECTED

Pay the electrician 90% when the job is done and the other 10% after the inspection is complete.

If the electrician offers to do the work cheaper but without permit/inspections. find another electrician.

I wish that were true. I have spoken to a few and based on the requirements from Fuquay-Varina the few I have spoken to are not able to wire (it's because of the grounding requirements which is either a grounding ring or drilling into the slab and grounding on the rebar or wiring). I have the permits and everything already but I did Google a few pool/hot tub places I just wanted to see if anyone had personal experience.

Thanks for the input!

Diverse Electric did my house, then wired in a pool as well. I'm sure a hot tub would be a breeze for them. All clean wiring proper gauges and nice and neat.

Sorry to hear that, I was an Electrical contractor for 30 years and grounding rings were done all the time. What has happened to todays contractors?
