    If it is residential install then you can use nm cable for the tub indoor. The only issue is if the manufacturer requires a full size equipment grounding conductor.
    They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
    She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me
    I can't help it if I'm lucky

    I had a guy install a full size outdoor type hot tub indoors and right in the middle of a small living room. You had like 4ft to walk around it to get to the front door. It was the craziest thing.

    Yes... but to the OP . Is it in a hotel ?

    try looking at 680.21 for the non insulated EGC in NM cable.

    110.3(B) for when instructions require full sized EGC.
    I live for today, I'm just a day behind.

    680.43 is the appropriate article as it states chapter 3 wiring methods
