I'm getting ready to run the permanent electric runs for the pool. The circuit will have a dedicated GFI in the main panel. I'm working with the electrician across the street from me, so I have knowledgeable help.
I have the normal outlets planned, pump, light, low voltage lights, and one convenience outlet under the deck (above ground pool) about 12 feel away. I requested another convenience outlet for a radio above the deck on a railing post about 12 feet from the pool's edge. He balked due to having an outlet near the pool.
So, what is the code for this? Do others have a GFI outlet near the pool? I know people aren't running cords all over the place to power radios, etc. I looked for the National Building Code but couldn't find this. I live in PA and couldn't find anything about PA code either.
Any thoughts or advice are appreciated.
