We are building a pool house between our main house and a rental unit on the property. We just started digging and discovered that there is a main electrical conduit line running directly through the middle of where the pool house would be, between the main house and rental unit. The line is 6 feet down, though, and therefore not in the way of our building and too low for us to break. Do you see any reason for us to reroute it? We'd rather avoid the extra cost and time, but want to make sure we are safe.
In Canada there are code rules for proximity of electrical cables and devices in relation to swimming pools and related equipment. These rules apply to both overhead and underground cables.
You should contact a local licensed electrical contractor to assess the situation and provide guidance in relation to your local codes.
