    New building code for low voltage lights around pool?

    Necguru, My town told me it was acceptable to put outside speakers five feet from the waters edge. The outside speakers are connected by speaker wires to a Sonos device on my house. Does that make sense to you? Or would the same concept apply that they shouldn't be 5 feet from the pool...

    basketball hoop

    I got a basketball hoop from sr smith. They make one rated for salt pools as well. It's being installed now and looks great. Interfab also sells one but jute changed their design last year and instead of a rectangle it is a half moon which I don't like much.

    Outdoor music/sonos

    I am building a pool and would like to put speakers around the pool and hot tub. We installed Sonos in our house in December 2007, so will utilize it for the outdoors. We already have outdoor speakers on our lower patio, but want to put speakers around the pool and hot tub (the hot tub is a...
