New homeowner could not figure out why pool light wouldn't work.I found this switch while checking for powera at deck box,which is also under the diving board. What could have been going through someones mind to install a switch here??

Location almost makes sense, because the switch is sheltered from splashes (board acts like an umbrella), and there is no trip hazard. It's even possible that the 5' rule is met! We might ask why the switch need not be GFI protected (GFI protection determined by light location), when a receptacle 9.9' away does need a GFI. As to conductivity: pool chemicals are sure to make pool water a much better conductor than tap water.
