As previously posted, I'm working on having work done to my pool. My biggest concern is "rewiring" my pool light. The conduit to the pool light must be replaced as it is old metal pipe. See attached pictures. I had one electrician out to look at the repair, he went on to say that I need to have my pool light niche re-placed. I talked to several pool guys, and they are telling me that my niche is fine, and the only thing that needs to be done is remove the deck junction box, run a smooth 90 degree copper fitting from the existing copper pipe coming off of the existing niche. Once the smooth 90 is attached it can then transition to PVC conduit then to the junction box where my GFI box is located.
Along with the new niche, which the electrician said must be PVC, the electrician went on to say that the pool will need to have three grounding points to the re-bar in the concrete.
Can someone enlighten me on the specifics of this sort of job. I just don't want these guys to make it sound more then what it is and over charge me.
I appreciate any feedback you may have.
