Grounding/bonding of new above ground pool

The pool installers are setting up an above ground pool Friday. We are good as far as the pump power and conv. outlet. What is required of the electrician for grounding/bonding of the actual pool shell, ladder, etc. ?

The pool company should know what is code in your area. If not, contact the city hall to verify if Permit was pulled for the job, and also same for the electrical & plumbing. This all should have been thought about before shovel hit ground.

There should be an bond grid or wire run around the walk surface under the ground, the water should have a bond fitting installed and all metallic surfaces like the ladder and pool shell should all be bonded together with a min of a #8 copper conductor
