I am purchasing a home that has a jacuzzi tub in it already. We had our inspector test all of the gcfi and try to trip the motor to the jacuzzi, but it appears it's not on a visible gcfi outlet. The only access panel to the motor/electrical work of the jacuzzi is currently tiled over, so in order to verify if it is grounded, I will need to pull the tile off and probably some wood work to get to the access panels. My question is, if it is not grounded, what is the best approach to fixing it? I do not know too much about electrical work, is this something I would typically need to hire a contractor to get it fixed? The house doesn't have a second shower/tub, so we would essentially need to do this right away when we move in. I would IMAGINE it is grounded, because from how the inspector put it, it is completely unsafe to even use the tub without the motor grounded. The previous owners have lived there for 2 years now, and showered every single day, and said they have had no issues, but could not tell me if it was grounded. We have an electrician come take a look and he could not find a dedicated power line running from the box to below where the tub is, so he is kind of perplexed himself. I just don't really know the best way to go about this, I am guessing I am going to need to tear off the tiling regardless, but I'm not sure how to process/even tell if the motor is grounded.
Any advice would be real helpful, as dumbed down as possible would be great..thanks for reading.
