    Bonding wire between booster and main pump

    Hi - I think the answer is yes, but i just want to confirm. I have a bonding wire that can reach the main pump, but the wire is not longer enough to reach the booster pump. Can I just get a copper wire, attach it to the booster pump and then connect it to the lug on the main pump where the bonding wire is?

    Inground pool; about 20,000 gallons (18' x 36'); pool liner (vinyl?) a few years old; Hayward pump SPX2607X10

    yes, it should be at a minimum 8awg bare copper wire. Where the wire is spliced you should use a split bolt connector like this one.
