Need help removing unused pool electrical outlet from the garden


I need some help in finding out the correct way to remove couple of old/unused outdoor above ground pool's electric outlets left by the previous owner. The pool is no more, not sure why previous owner left them out sticking out in the middle of the backyard. These outlets w/ poles look bad in the backyard, not to mention danger of somebody getting injured w/ them. I really want to remove them this summer.

Would appreciate any helpful advise.

It will depending on how deep the conduit will be buried { some case you may find old UF cable buried as well } and you will have to find where it termated somecase it will pretty close stragiht shot and some will curve to advoid something before.

Before you do start remvoe them find a breaker for this circuit and also look for outdoor receptale at the house side to see if any conduit do show up or not.

If this is the only circuit and noting else is on that circuit you can abanon it and put a surface mounted receptale near the house if you can find it and unhook the rest.

You may find either UF cable or PVC conduit one of the two.
