Article 680.10

Article 680.10 provides the Minimum Cover Depths for conduit related to swimming pool installation.  As noted, it specifies the conduit cover requirements for "underground wiring locations."  There has been considerable difference of opinion related to how those requirements apply to a pool installed on a podium deck or rooftop of a high rise.

What is your opinion?  Do you believe that the new addition to the 2011 NEC stating that  "Nonmetallic raceways listed for direct burial under minimum of 102 mm(4 in.) thick concrete exterior slab and extending not less that 162mm (6 in.) beyond the underground installation" is sufficient basis to allow raceways not related to the pool equipment to be run under the pool shell, within the deck of a rooftop or podium?
