Do you need a ground rod for a pool?
In respect to this, do you have to ground a pool?
2 Answers. You need to BOND the pool structure and any equipment (motors, etc) or metal parts associated with the water circulation system. You also need to bond the water itself. Ground rods are NOT required other than for a sub-panel (if installed outside the house).
Also Know, what is the minimum depth for a ground rod? 8 feet
Also question is, do you need to bond an above ground pool?
You need to create a field around your swimming pool by attaching the bonding wire to the metal deck, pool equipment, metal pool wall, and even the water. Local state and federal building codes require all permanent above ground pools to get correctly bonded.
Why do you bond a swimming pool?
The goal of bonding is to connect, contain and prevent the transmission of any harmful electrical voltage to pool equipment, people and pets. Bonding connects the pool' s electrical and non-electrical metal components into a network that contains the electricity.
