Greg, I agree; WHAT are you talking about?
Wire "carries" current. It "provides" voltage.

What does 12/2 have to do with voltage? You certainly can have 12/2 for a 240v-20A circuit.
I don't get the issue here.

ABSOLUTELY NOT.

Here is the definition:
Storable Swimming or Wading Pool. Those that are constructed on or above the ground and are capable of holding water to a maximum depth of 1.0 m (42 in.), or a pool with nonmetallic, molded polymeric walls or inflatable fabric walls regardless of dimension.

I'd say an Intek pool fits the bold above. You know, where it says "...inflatable fabric walls regardless of dimension".
