    Light Junction Box

    My pool light currently has a junction box with a switch in it. I want to update it to be within code. Can I use an outdoor PVC single gang junction box with a solid cover? I have one pool light that will be connected in this box.

    Lets make sure we are talking about the same thing first.

    A pool light junction box is the electrical enclosure box near your pool where the cord from the light terminates. Is that what we are discussing?

    Assuming that it is no. To comply with the NEC you need a listed pool junction box. Like this one from Inyo Pools: Pentair Junction Box, (3) 3/4 Ports (78310600) - INYOPools.com

    That is the box I am discussing. My pool currently has a pvc box like you would purchase from a home store and has an exterior rated switch installed on the box. It was this way when I purchased the house. The box you attached is what I have seen but I only have one light, that box is for two connections. Was hoping other knew of a single box that is hopefully a little cheaper.
