pool light keeps popping the GFI

I have my pool light getting power from the load side of a GFI outlet. When i send power to the outlet the light will turn on for about 5min and then the GFI will pop. I reset the GFI and the light will turn on for 1min and then the GFI pops. As i continue to reset the GFI the length of time that the light stays on reduces until the light will only stay on for about 10seconds. i have replaced gthe GFI outlet and problem still exists. What ya think?

Ummmmmm....I think you have a ground fault that needs to be checked out.
Could be in the wiring, more likely in the light.

While they are at it have them check to see that the installation is up to code and safe. The light on the load side of a GFI receptacle tell me this is not a professional installation and NOT up to code.
Is the wiring in conduit the whole way?
