can not run UF at all. Pool wiring prohibits uninsulated ground wires. THWN conductors would have to be ran in conduit

If you don't know that, there are a lot of other pool requirements that you don't know either. Get a professional to wire a pool. This is no place to practice electricution (sorry Freudian slip) when you haven't even read the code requirements. Pools just aren't a do it yourself project. Mistakes around water and electricity and you, or heaven forbid someone else, may never get out of the pool. If you can't afford to hire a pro, you can't afford a pool.

yeah, I agree. That's why I won't touch my dead pool light. I have a pool service that handles all electric issues with my pool equipment. These guys find things I'd never think to re-do or upgrade. Worth the $$ everytime.

I am installing a new 220 vac pump. I am using a 220 gfi breaker in the subpanel. At the pump I will be using a knife switch. Should the switch be fusible?

Thanks

No you just have to put a disconnect within sight of the equipment (or provide a provision to lock it). There's no requirement to fuse it unless the pump instructions (unlikely) require such.
