Easye1644: Finding pool light switch

I purchased a foreclosure and everything was as is. So it's been a challenge learning to operate a pool with no help or manuals. I have looked everywhere for the pool light switch, but can't see it in any obvious place. I've found the junction box. Any ideas on where to c look or how to add another light switch. Thanks.

Did you make sure the lights are good? You can ohm them out with a meter.

You should be able to trace the cable/wire to some place where there would be a switch. It very likely might be inside the house. You will have to find where the hot comes from in order to interrupt it for a new switch, so you could also trace the cable going from the electrical panel and see where it goes to maybe locate the existing switch.

Some time back, someone else had this same question, and they found the waterproof switch on the deck under the diving board. No joke!
