Rocky Mountain Saunas Electrical Requirements
Information For All Sauna Models
** The outlet in which the sauna is plugged into must be a Dedicated Circuit. A Dedicated Circuit is intended for use with a single appliance and generally has its own circuit breaker in the sauna location’s electrical box.
** Any electrical changes or required upgrades must be made by a qualified, licensed electrician. Failure to comply may result in safety issues and voiding of the sauna warranty.
** The power cord for the sauna is located in the roof cap and measures 9 feet in length. It is recommended that the location of the outlet is accessible without moving the sauna.
** The use of an extension cord is not recommended as the sauna may not operate as designed.
