The more I research this pool stuff the more I'm getting overwhelmed!! From everything I've read you can't/shouldn't run the pools filter and SWS off and extension cord. So, that means we need to run electrical out to the pool area. What are the requirements? I think I read that the outlet needs to be at least 5 feet from the pool and that the buried line can't go under the pool. Is this true? What if you want the filter on the back side of the pool in the corner of your yard? How close can the buried line go to the pool? Here is the area that we are thinking of putting the pool 15X48 metal frame intex pool (we will move the swing set to another area in the yard)
We would put the pool pretty much were the swing set is now. Wouldn't the best place for the filter be along the fence or in the corner near the shed? The problem is that the electrical line is going to be coming from the left...wouldn't it need to go under the area where the pool is going to go/or at least very close to it? Would it make more sense to have the power be run to the shed and then have an outlet put on the side of the shed?
I feel like I'm making this whole thing way more complicated then it has to be . I hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance for your replies!!
