Full Description


This is the second edition of CSA C22.2 No. 218.2, Hydromassage bathtub appliances, one of a series of Standards issued by CSA Group under Part II of the Canadian Electrical Code. It supersedes the previous edition published in 1993.

Changes to this edition include modification to risk of shock hazard, incorporation of extra-low-voltage power supplies, and a general update of the reference standards and clauses affected by the reference standard updates.

For general information on the Standards of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part II, see the preface of CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 0, General requirements — Canadian Electrical Code, Part II.

This Standard has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.


This Standard applies to hydromassage bathtub appliances and associated accessories for residential and commercial use that are intended to be permanently connected to a plumbing system and building structure, for use indoors in non-hazardous locations, permanently installed in accordance with the Rules of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, and either
a) permanently connected to a single- or three-phase branch circuit rated 150 V or less to ground; or
b) connected by means of a factory installed power supply cord having a 15 A 125 V attachment plug that complies with Clause 9 of this Standard.

This Standard applies to hydromassage bathtub appliances having hydromassage action produced by either air bubble jets or hydraulic jets, or a combination of both.

This Standard applies to hydromassage bathtubs equipped with an electric immersion heating system.

This Standard does not apply to
a) spas, hot-tubs, and associated equipment covered in CSA C22.2 No. 218.1;
b) portable hydromassage units that are provided with a cord and attachment plug and that are not intended to be permanently connected to the plumbing system;
c) hydrotherapy bathtubs or patient bathing systems for institutional use; or
d) hydromassage bathtubs equipped with a radiant water heating system.

In this Standard, "shall" is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the Standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard; and "can" is used to express possibility or capability. Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material. Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements. Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.
