Are CAFI/GFCI combo breakers ok to use in control panel?

Is it allowable to use GFCI / combination AFCI (“CAFI”) breakers in a control panel for an in-ground pool? The local Home Depot only has GFCI/CAFI, not just GFCI ones. Price seems to be the same as what I see online — about $46.

It's certainly allowable to use CAFI breakers, just be aware that some pool equipment may trip the AFCI side prematurely. As long as that doesn't happen you'll be fine.
