Can I combine a grid-tied PV system and a solar pool pump system?

Q:

Can I combine a grid-tied PV system and a solar pool pump system?

A:

No, at least not electrically. The solar pool pump system is not designed or intended to be connected to grid-tied PV panels. The solar pool pump uses dedicated PV panels. The PV panels the solar pump uses could be mounted within a larger array of PV panels, but they would have to be wired seperately and exclusively to the solar pump controller.
