I am remodeling a house and have a homeowners electrical permit. My question is about GFCI protection for the whirlpool. The manufacturer says it needs two dedicated 120V lines, one for the heater and one for the pump. I ran #12 3wire w/ground from the panel, through a wall box for the timer, then on to the outlet for the tub. Can I use a double pole 20A GFCI breaker for this? I have read some posts with concerns about the shared neutral, but I am still having trouble getting a clear answer. Also, I am having trouble finding a DPST timer switch rated for 20A. Thanks for the help!

The double pole GFI breaker should work, or you could use two GFI receptacles. You may have some nuisance tripping with the timer inline and using the GFI breaker. Check with an electrical supply store or pool supply company for the timer. As long as the rating is at least 20A you are OK.
