Are you talking about wiring associated with the pool or wiring not associated with the pool? and is this conduit going to be under your pool deck?

What is the total amperage of the pool? Will it ever be heated and will this be electric and what amperage?

I would suggest gathering together all the manufacturer's installation instruction documents / specifications for this. Then take plenty of pictures of all the areas/breaker panel - future breaker panel location, etc. Then go and ask your local electrical inspector's office.

Might even want to break this up into two separate projects. Just install breaker panel, then next project to connect hot tub/pool.

Also if the pool is not yet installed, take pictures of the whole area including the area above where the pool will go (looking for overhead electrical lines). Show all these to the inspector.

There are all sorts of specific rules for pools. Best to run the entire plan by an inspector first. Also there are problems with locating a pool below overhead electrical lines.
FYI: My Daughter's fiancÚ installed a beautiful pool in her yard without permit ( several K) she went to sell the house , it was two close to overhead electric lines she had to remove the entire pool and re landscape the yard before she sold it.

I have my own swimming pool company up here in the Bronx, NY. I know some electrical work but anytime i would have a installation never would I do the electric work myself. I would always have a licensed electrician do the wiring because of many reasons. God forbid anything happens to someone in the pool because of faulty wiring, I dont want to be the one to blame. As anyone knows.. electric and water don't mix!
Just something to think about.

You made the right decision. Because there are so many intricate details in the design and execution of the work that if any detail is missed it could cost someone's life. A few years ago there was a case in a town in New Jersey, where a young girl somehow made contact with the drain of the circulator pump and the power of suction held her down, that she couldn't be freed. Sadly, she lost her life. Had there been a cutoff switch at the pool area, ("Within Sight".) her life could have been saved.!

Sorry for the typo i meant to write "my own swimming pool company". But yea i would never do the major electric work myself for reasons as you stated above. Since a number of disasters have happened with the main drains sucking people down and holding them underwater, most main drain covers in the pools have to be changed so that you cant get sucked to them. its the little things that people don't think of at the time of the install.
