I installed switches on all my exterior outlets after I found out that a former neighbor was plugging his pool filter into one of them after I left for work.

I would have run a 220 line and used a 120 outlet.......

A better solution would be to temporarily rewire the outlet your neighbor is stealing power from to put out 240 volts.
Then watch the smoke coming out of his pool filter or electric car.

When I added on to my house recently I debated wiring an outside outlet.
It dawned on me that in the 25 years I lived here, I used an outside outlet maybe 5 times. Not enough to justify installing one.
If I need power outside, I will use the wall outlet I installed just inside the garage door.
