Pool light

We're in the middle of building a new pool. 3 lights were to be installed. 2 Globrites on the far ends facing each other. 1 smaller light pointing off the baja shelf.

Concrete was just poured. The 2 larger Globrite housings were covered and stick out.

The problem: The smaller light PVC pipe (I think it's pvc pipe) was not sticking out of the wall and is now encased in concrete. Is this normal? Do you just drill through the concrete to connect to the pipe or does this pose a future pool leak?

Waiting on PB to get back to me.

Welcome to TFP.

The PVC pipe should have had a stub with a cap on it. I think it will be difficult to drill out the concrete without damaging the pipe. You may need to abandon that pipe and core drill a new hole near it and insert a new pipe into it for the light.

See what your PB says.
