    Probibly wouldnt be very smart unless its an unregular outlet (more ampere, Volts)

    First step is to find out how many amps your jacuzzi draws and whether it's 120 or 240 volts. Then determine the amps/voltage of the heater bath tub. If they aren't the same voltage, it won't work.

    If they are the same voltage, add up the number of amps they draw. Then go down to your circuit breaker the outlet is attached to and determine the amount of amps that circuit can handle. Typically it will be displayed right on the switch. If the number of combined amps is 20% or less than the circuit break, great! If not, stop.

    If still want to power both items from one outlet, you'll need to have a circuit breaker with enough amps to power it, house wire thick enough to carry the appropriate amps, and an outlet that can handle the same amps.

    You will probably pop fuses. Try it out and see what happens. Are you going to be using both at the same time? How old is your Electrical system. Many questions here to give you a real answer. good luck though.

    The best thing to do would be to put each of the units on their own designated breakers, having both on would probably overload the circuit and trip the breaker.

    Probably a bad idea, as this may overload the circuit. Best to get a qualified electrician to come in and properly wire these items.

    they would each need at least45 amp. coverage. 60 to 90 amp breaker might work. which is the norm for 240 applications.

  • Yeah, and then throw a clock radio in, if you're trying to commit the perfect murder.
