options for re-routing underground wire


i too am planning on installing an inground pool and doing as much of the work myself as possible. i know i have the underground feed for the detached garage running right through where i intend to put the pool. i pulled the cover off of the conduit where it enters the attached garage and i can see three wires.

what are my options on how to relocate this run?

is there a way to kill the power, cut the wire and then splice on an extension so as to not have to disconnect anything from the panel?

Yes, you could install a junction box and connect new wires. However, to fully consider your options please provide some additional information.

Is there a sub panel in the garage? Is this circuit just a few receptacles and lights with no sub panel? What size breaker protects the wiring at the main panel? What size is the wire? Is the wire run in conduit all the way? Is the wiring individual conductors or is it a cable assembly, such as UF-B?
