    pool light fixture replacement

    my light fixture is old and deteriorating, and I would like to replace it. I got the fixture on to the pool deck without any problem, however I can't seem to get any further. I lifted up my diving board and did not find a junction box. the only other place is an on/off switch near the pool pump, ~50 ft away. I disconnected the wires from the switch, then got in the pool and tried to pull on the conduit. however, it wouldn't budge. am I missing something? how can I get this cord out? pool was built in 1984. thanks.

    It wouldn't be unusual for the fixture to have enough wire to reach the switch. Is the wire the same at the switch as it is at the light?

    not sure, I can't unscrew it from the light fixture and I haven't cut it yet. I'm trying to avoid cutting it because it does still work and the way things are going so far...
