The modeling over a metal pool structure would involve interpreting the 
effect of the fresh water pool on the antenna ground conditions, and 
also the ground effect of the metal structure.  The analogy could be 
made to modeling a mobile whip over a car structure.  This has been done 
and was written up some years back in "Communications Quarterly" or 
"QEX".   I believe by a VE ham who worked for Canada's Propagation 
Laboratory.  A segmented outline of the car shape was used in the 
calculation of fields, much as you use segments of the antenna in NEC 
Antenna modeling.
