Pool conduit code requirements


We are building a new home at the moment and the contractor ran conduit for a seperate garage across the length of our back yard about 10' out from the patio. The conduit is 36" down and has been inspected and approved.

We want to put in a pool. one of the fiberglass drop in units. We find out our code requires 20' from electrical and property lines for pools. My question is: do underground conduits count? I really don't want the pool to be 30' from my patio. I was hoping to get it as close to the conduit/house as possible.

I wasn't sure if they mean above ground lines and powersources like outlets.
