    Pool and Landscape Wiring

    I agree new low voltage lighting could be totally independent of existing wiring. Pump is 120V and shares same conduit as landscape lights, not same wire though. My #1 priority is to eliminate the safety hazard which means I have to deal with existing wiring in some fashion. Here is a pic...

    Some further discoveries: Pool rated transformers are only needed for underwater luminaires (pool light) which is something I hadn't considered changing to low voltage, but maybe will now. The bigger problem: Code does not allow permanent burial of junction boxes. They must be accessible...

They are pagoda lights that sit above junction boxes mounted on dual PVC conduit. They sit about 3-4 feet from the pool's edge, which I know does not meet today's code. They also...

    Any pool/landscape electrical experts here that are familiar with code? I’m considering changes that will need to be made in the Spring and have some ideas that I would like to get confirmed before I bring someone in for a quote or contemplate doing it myself. I’ll spare myself and everyone...
