under ground electric line will electrocute?
THe pool crew refused to dig the in ground pool until we visibly saw the under ground electric line. We had call before you dig mark the line but these markers can be off in feet.
My question is how far can an in ground pool be from the underground cable. I have been told 18 inches, IDK, 5 feet, 10 feet, 15 feet, 35 feet.
I have spoken to the power company, the pool builders, the electricians, and googled the internet looking for building codes.
THe cable and communication line was buried 38 inches and runs just under 5 feet to the pool's water.
I need to know code since the line is exposed and to coordinate the electrician, power company and the cable company.
No one answers their phones or has called me back after leaving messages.
What is code regarding how close an underground electric cable can run?
