The spa and hot tub subsection is about 3 pages, the entire section (which also covers swimming pools and fountains) is about 21 pages.

I would bet a 6-pack that a hot tub install would require pulling a permit and passing inspection in most municipalities.

I would be comfortable doing this myself if I were interested in having a hot tub. It isn't rocket science, but there are very specific requirements.
Thanks Zepp!
