Outdoor Post for Pool Pump

Is there a code requirement for the depth of a post that's attached the pump's receptacle/switch box? Since I'm located where frost heave is a concern, does the post need to be buried 42 inches and set in concrete too?

My inspector never even asked how it was in there. What I did was dug a hole about 12" X 12" X24" deep and drove a piece of uni-strut down pretty far, then poured concrete in around it and filled it the rest of the way with dirt.
