I figured that was the real problem and I know how you feel. The routers placement probably isn't ideal in respect to the pool house's location so is probably also limiting the signal strength.
You could try running one of those USB antenna's outside the pool house under the eves in a dry loction to see if the connection improves. I like the D-link DWA-140 myself.
