This is a job for an electrician. If you do not know exactly what you are doing, you could end up electrocuting yourself, anyone using the hot tub, or burn down your house.
3 prong the 2 black wires are your hot and the braided is your neutral.
(not sure what a hut spa is, but I'll assume an outdoor hot tub?) Yes and no. You must have an "in sight" disconnect for the spa/hot tub (among other safety rules). You can run the wire for the outdoor disconnect from the fuse box.
Just use one of the hot wires and cap the other. Since you are changing the breaker, the unused line will not be hooked to anything. There is really nothing to be gained by pulling new wire.
You have three feed wires on US residential service: 2 hots and neutral. These wires are connected to a 240V center tapped transformer with the neutral connected to the center tap. So, you have 120V between either hot and neutral and 240V between the hots. There is no neutral in this circuit because the load doesn't require 120V, it draws 240V directly from both hots.

One can find reviews for outdoor hot tubs at the the Consumer Report website. This website contains reviews for many brands of outdoor hot tubs to compare.

In North America it takes two "hot" wires to obtain 240 volts.
Yes, that is the correct wire gauge. However, if your tub is much more than 100 ft. from the panel you might consider going up in wire size to #4 due to voltage drop.
two hot one ground
Answer for UK, Europe and countries running a 50 Hz supply service.There are quite a few appliances that use a 240V line. Air conditioners, fridges, washers and dryers all use the 240V line.Answer for Canada, USA and countries running a 60 Hz supply service.In North America only the larger appliances use 240 volts. The hot water tank, stove, range top, baseboard heating and clothes dryer are the main appliances that use the higher voltage.
Black would be hot, white would be hot, and green would be common. Four wire is usually two hots, a common and a chasis ground. Just make sure you don't connect one of the service hot wires to the green wire. So, if you are wiring this to service with black, red, white, and green (bare) wires, you connect black to black, and green to green. The white wire of the cooktop connects to the red wire. The white wire of the feed should be capped with a wire nut.
Bare wires!?!?!?! For 240V you need 3 wires plus ground. Red and Black are hot, white is neutral. Don't mess with 240V if you have no idea what you're doing. It's not safe at all.
Because they are "in-phase". In order to get 240v, you need two 120v Alternating Current lines that are 180° out of phase, that is, opposite phases. Only when one line is +120v and the other -120v will you see 240v between the wires.
Yes, you can use hot glue outside.
The price of an outdoor hot tub can vary. Most are in the price rang of $2,000-4,000 depending on how simple you want yours to be.
There are no adptors to plug a 240v plug into a 120v receptacle. 240v requires two hot wores and a neutral and ground. 120v requires one hot wire, a neutral and a ground. If you have something that runs on 240/120 you need the cord and adaptor that came with the equipment as you willl need the wires to mate up accordingly.
Using a box that is hire voltage than what you need can cause a short, and even a fire. So using a 240V box, when all you need is a 110v receptacle, wouldn't be a good idea.
You better call an electrician.
White is neutral. Black (and red, if you're looking at a 240v circuit) are hot.
The sentence should be, "For the family reunion, I cooked hamburger and hot dogs on an outdoor grill."
CL200 is the class of the meter240V is 240 volts3W is 3 wire (hot 120v / hot 120v / neutral)FM2S is the type of meterIs this an Itron meter? The FM2S will tell you what features it has when you look at the datasheets.
The existing 4 wires meaning Red, Black, White, Bare? Red and black are "hot" (using 120V from each phase of your service entrance), white is neutral, and bare is ground. Ground the bare or green wire to the electrical box then use red and black as your hot wires and white as neutral. You must ground the welder itself also with a jumper wire in order to be safe.
Not a hard job or complicated but could be hazardous. Hire a professional.
Only as hot as the aquastat setting on the boiler tells it to get. Or in the case of a reset system where the water temp is reset up or down based on outdoor air temp, only as hot as the reset schedule (which is adjustable) set into the controller tells it to get given the outdoor conditions on that particular day.
