Saw this beautiful pergola online and it got me to thinking. Is there anything code wise that would make this not acceptable? “This” meaning electric lights & ceiling fans being in close proximity to a residential pool?

I am not an electrician, but NEC 680.22 B states a new light or fan installed above the pool (or within 5 feet of the edge) need to be at least 12 feet above the water.
Your local code could have additional limitations
