Grounding rod for pool filter

I am moving my pool filter/pump/swg. It will be about 50' from the panel. Should I be installing a grounding rod for the new location for additional grounding? Is there any down side to installing the grounding rod? and/or should I be installing the grounding rod as an addition to the bonding grid?

No need to install the extra ground rod.

No grounding rod however, you must maintain the integrity of the equipotential bonding system.

Re: Grounding rod for pool filter

I would get an electrical permit from your local government agency which handles this. Take plenty of pictures of the area and existing wiring.

Electrical inspectors have hours where you can ask questions. Go over your plan. Ask if it is OK. Then do the work and have it inspected.

If there is anything not safe, they will point it out to you - ahead of time and at the inspection. And the best part of all is you get an expert electrician going over your work - for not too much money!

And pools can be dangerous. There have been some nasty accidents in the past. So good idea to be darn sure everything is wired in a safe manner. Up to code.
