I punctured the metal (I think red brass) conduit carrying my pool light wire so I thought now would be a good time to rewire and replace the pool light and GFCI/switch controlling it. I have a few questions about the pool light and would really appreciate your help:
1) Can I just add a piece of brass to the current conduit with a coupling and move the wiring further out? I would prefer to couple PVC conduit to the red brass for cost savings and availability but I'm not sure if that will cause issues with grounding/bonding. The puncture in the conduit is above the water line so I don't anticipate any pool water flowing up to the coupling.
2) Do I need a bonding wire? I don't see any wire in or around the conduit besides the 3wires in a jacket for the pool light.
3) Do I have to use a deck box/pool junction box? I was hoping to bring the red brass conduit directly into a 2 gang metallic weatherproof junction box where I would have the GFCI and light switch for the pool.
Thank you in advance!!
