As long as I stay at least 10 ft. away from the wall of the pool, can't I run uf cable to post lamps around the pool? Thanks Steve...

I say you only have to stay 5 feet away from the pool per 680.22(B). UF wire could be installed at least 12" deep and GFCI protected if you can satisfy 300.5 T.300.5 Column 4.
