Pool bonding HELP!!!!!!!!!


I think you've already been told the ground rod is not needed.

Grounds and neutrals should be isolated from each other in the shed panel.

That makes sense now..
Sounds like because ground and neutrals on the same bar in the sub panel is causing the difference when adding ground rod.

So to properly wire this. I need to separate the ground wires from neutrals and connect the bonding wire back to motor.

Thanks for all your help./.....

Resolution:

Hey brric thanks for all your help you hit it on the head.
The electrician came by last night, everything I wired is correct.
The existing sub panel had was the problem.
Once he separated the neutrals from the ground, everything worked perfect.
Just needed an isolated ground bar.

Thanks again to everyone.
