A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter detects tiny amounts of stray current and shuts off the electricity before it can cause harm. A GFCI is much more sensitive to a problem than a fuse or standard circuit breaker.
GFCIs constantly monitor electricity flowing in a circuit. If the electricity flowing into the circuit differs by even a slight amount from that returning, the GFCI will quickly shut off the current flowing through that circuit. The advantage of using GFCIs is that they can detect even small variations in the amount of leakage current, even amounts too small to activate a fuse or circuit breaker.

The neutral wire from the spa to the breaker box must be wired into the breaker itself and not the bus bar. This is because it is not a dedicated 240v spa. If the neutral is wired to the bus bar, the breaker will instantly trip at power up. Refer to wiring diagram. The installation of all spas must be in accordance with national and local wiring rules. Always have a licensed Electrician perform the electrical installation.
A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter or GFCI, is an electronic device for protecting people from serious injury due to electric shock. They are often found on bathroom or kitchen circuits, or other circuits located close to water.

Poison Ivy Cure
ONGARD® Skin Protectant is a barrier cream that will create a polymer surface on your skin. After you have applied ONGARD® on your skin, urushiol oil in poison ivy, poison oak or poison sumac plants will remain on the surface of your skin and not penetrate the pores of your skin. While the zinc oxide in ONGARD® helps dry up the urushiol, it is also important to wash your hands with soap and water after exposure to urushiol oil and then dry them on a disposable paper towel.

Reliance Controls Corporation | Frequently Asked Questions
Certain Honda Industrial/Commercial generators have the neutral bonded to ground to pass OSHA inspection on job sites. Since home or building main breaker boxes also have neutral bonded to ground, two parallel paths back to the generator are created, one using the neutral wire and one using the ground wire. The neutral current now flows through both conductors.
