In a back yard project I am working on, I became overzealous and cut through the wires of one of my pool lights. Before I made this mistake, the pool wires (3-wire insulated and unique ground) ran approximately 30 ft to a J-box and then back to the GFI.
To repair, I was thinking of installing a new code-compliant (5ft away from edge 2ft above water level) JBox near the lamp side of the cut. I'd then run new 3-wire + ground to the original JBox.
Does anyone see any problems with this? All wire connections are above water and away from water.
