I presume you mean an electrical outlet - probably talking outlet plus hard-wired install if you have pool pump/cleaner/chlorinator etc. Depending on specifics of your install, probably NEMA 3R, 4 or 6 classification depending on your application. Depending on what this is going to run (pump, chlorinator, power filtration system, lights, stereo system, etc) controls the cable and breaker size of course. ASSUMING your existing breaker box has excess capacity to handle the new load, then typically in ballpark of $400-600 plus about $5-7/LF of distance from breaker box to pool - rough numbers not knowing your specifics. This assumes trenching through readily diggable ground and not having to tunnel under sidewalks or significant interference with other buried utilties or such. Searchthe List for Electricians - and be sure to specify ALL the devices and such you will be connecting to the circuit. If he lays out run location for you when doing bid, you will save some money digging the ditch and filling it back in when done and installing required post to mount outlet on (if needed) versus having him do it - be sure to get your free utility locates (usually call 811, in most areas). Some electricians will want you to either do the digging or hire someone else like a handyman or cable trenching contractor or excavation contractor to do the trench and post. Can be done overhead if clearance are legal but little if any cost advantage unless very long run, and requires high pole and unsightly overhead cables.
