Does anyone know the article number in NEC that says the current ratting for the Jacuzzi GFI disconnect is supposed to be greater than or equal to the current rating of the feed breaker in the service panel?
680.43(A)(3) comes close but I don't think it is what I'm looking for.

This question pertains to "Packaged Spa or Hot Tub Equipment Assembly" as described in 680.2


Thanks

How about this.?

680.44 Protection. Except as otherwise provided in this section,
the outlet(s) that supplies a self-contained spa or hot tub,
a packaged spa or hot tub equipment assembly, or a fieldassembled
spa or hot tub shall be protected by a ground-fault
circuit interrupter.

(A) Listed Units. If so marked, a listed self-contained unit or
listed packaged equipment assembly that includes integral
ground-fault circuit-interrupter protection for all electrical
parts within the unit or assembly (pumps, air blowers, heaters,
lights, controls, sanitizer generators, wiring, and so forth) shall
be permitted without additional GFCI protection.(B) Other Units. A field-assembled spa or hot tub rated 3

phase or rated over 250 volts or with a heater load of more
than 50 amperes shall not require the supply to be protected
by a ground-fault circuit interrupter.

Informational Note: See 680.2 for definitions of selfcontainede
spa or hot tub and for packaged spa or hot tub
equipment assembly.
The disconnect should be rated for at least the load served.

I don't see how any of those art. answers the question. Are you looking for 430.110 -- the disconnect means for motor circuits shall have an ampere rating not less than 115% of the fla. ????
