that means that ripples on the surface will alter the direction of the beam... i am curious how much...
a note to those who respond... the light is not going in the drink...

Other than that, I can only think of finding a pool like an outdoor hotel one that is well lit already from under the water and just light the outside a few stops lower.

What effect are you trying to achieve with your lighting. Lighting from above would look quite different from an underwater light (such as a Sea Par). Are you trying to light the surrounding areas or the pool, or do you want it to look like the light is emanating from the pool. Is the camera underwater?

Skip past the first scene to about 1:33 (first scene looks terribly dark on that upload) and let me know if that's anything like what you want.
I wish I had a better key:fill ratio on their faces, but oh well. That was my first film I ever shot.

But for the lighting you require i would recommend buying the film Garden State and watch the special features on there as they have a great way to light a pool at night, by hanging what looks like a small zeppelin with a light in above the pool.
It worked well for them and was an on the spot decision to make for them also.
Hope this helps in someway
