I don't know if it is still there, but the Univ. TX Amateur Radio Club 
Web page had an RF Safety on line calculator.  You certainly want to 
apply that to the antenna over a pool with aluminum nearby.  I think it 
would fail RF safety rules if you used the amplifier.  For NVIS, you 
don't need more than 100 watts, and even that will also bring some skip 
contacts at night on a NVIS antenna.
