I have a gunnite pool in by backyard with a pool light. The pool is wired by means of a junction box that comes off the pool electrical and sits behind the pool. The conduit goes into the box from the pool equipment and then out the box undergroud into the pool light.

I want to run an outlet about 25 feet to the corner of the screened area for a fountain. My question is, can tie into the existing box and run another conduit out to where I want the other outlet?

There are very, very many special requirements on pool wiring.

And I have not tried studding the details.

Because of that I would not touch the existing wiring.

If the existing conduit from the panel to the j-box is big enough you can pull an other circuit through it.

Then from the j-box run conduit to the new location.

If the conduit is not big enough then run a whole new circuit.
