Above ground pool electrical


I just bought an above ground pool that is 52 inches high and 15ft long. I have not opened it yet and have heard that it can only be 20 ft from the electric outlet. My outlet is currently about 27 ft from the outlet. Should I return my pool? it is the only place I have that is flat. Would it make a difference If I bought a bit smaller pool?

Why not have a new receptacle installed?

Above ground pool electrical
