I concur, that must have taken some time to write, but most helpful to the OP I'm sure!

in ground pool bonding


Thanks guys. That writeup was an evolution over several weeks this spring on the pool forum I am on. For some reason it seems like there was an unusually large amount of questions this spring about pool shocks (electrical). There was also a large amount of misinformation about grounding and bonding being thrown out there as well. I usually will not get into the specifics of how to do the bonding on the posters pools as I am not there to see them in person but, instead, do as you have and refer them to read the code on what is required. I wrote the explanation more to clear up the confusion on the difference between the two and the reasons both exist. It still amaizes me that some people think a ground rod stuck in the dirt will protect them. I also have fixed about 20 bonding issues on pools around here this summer due to handyman instalations. I had a toe to toe with one of them a couple of weeks ago about this very thing. I ultimatly blew him in to the code people in town for doing an unpermitted install on a pool.

Here's another.
What was the lowest voltage that you had a complaint about? Was it from a man (women and children are more sensitive)?

Thanks.
