    I see that done at a lot of places. It may not be pretty but it works. If you have to meet code in your area make sure you find out if they're ok with it.

    Here what I did. Ran and attach my outlet and landscape box to a 4x4. Just to make it nicer I used schd40 conduit to run the wire neatly up the post to the box.

    I'd like to see some pictures as well. Trying to figure out what to do with mine as well. Just got the pool and am running off of a 14gauge extension cord with an attached GFCI outlet. I'd love to get a timer setup so it can shut off at night.
