Section 702 in BS7671:2008 covers swimming pools. It says what you are allowed to do but not how to do it. I think you may have problems getting LABC to allow you to DIY electrics. You can ask of course and if the say yes then they will have to ensure it's all done safely but think you will get a no from them.
