    Pool light transformer

    I am thinking of putting my pool light transformer in a pvc junction box/electrical box with conduit from the db to the box and conduit from the box to the pool light. Is this a good way to do it?

    Not sure on the distance you are talking about or the method of isolating if more than arms reach away , otherwise not a bad idea as long as the heat factor is dealt with

    The transformer is right below a sub db and the pool pump connects to that same sub db so all within 1.5m the sub db has a double pole main switch like it should but there is also a jacuzzi and a plug on that sub db. Would the pool light and pool pump still need their own isolators?

    It's generally a good idea to have separate isolators for the pool pump and pool light, even if they're close to the sub db. It adds an extra layer of safety and makes maintenance easier since you can cut power to each independently if needed.
