Looking ahead to landscaping on my build, I have read several of the lighting posts and also reviewed the NEC article 680. It states that (LV) luminares not to be places w/n 10 ft of the inside wall of pool even if gfci protected. I would think that a stray voltage issue is the problem. But I see several pictures where they seem much closer than that. Am I missing something?
A low voltage light w/n 10 ft is not ok, but standard 120v gfci outside of 5 ft is?
Low-voltage lighting systems, such as those covered by Article 411, shall not be within 10 ft of a pool, spa or hot tub even if GFCI protected [411.4]. Figure 680-13 un680-13 680-22B4 411-04.cdr
