Can pool pump and heater be on same circuit?

The manufacturer doesn’t recommend hooking them both up but it’s a long run to a corner of my property and it would mean removing some concrete to run the conduit out to the heater location. Seems the manufacturer’s main reason to have separate circuits is to prevent a problem with one interfering with the other.

What size wire do you need for a 60 amp breaker?

For 60 ampere breakers, electricians and professionals suggest using a wire size gauge ranging from 6 AWG to 4 AWG. All household wires have a rating of at least 600V, so only amperage really matters when it comes to determining wire gauge.

Should I run my pool heat pump at night?

It is not advisable to heat your pool at night because of the time and energy it will consume. You’re advised to heat your pool during the day for more efficiency, and if you can, buy a solar blanket to retain the temperature of your pool.
