Compute the voltage drop from the garage to the pool house for the pool house load (in amperes).

Compute the voltage drop from the house panel to the garage for the combined load for both the garage and the pool house.

Add the two together, should not exceed 3 percent.

There is a third number, the voltage drop for the span from the utility pole transformer to the house main panel for the combined load for the main house, the garage, and the pool house. All 3 numbers should add up to no more tha 5 (percent). This number is more difficult to compute so it is easier to just worry about the other two which should add up to no more than 3 (percent).
