Hello, everyone. We're experiencing an electrical shock in our inground pool. It's a 16 x 32 salt water pool with a propane heater and an automatic pool cover. The cover motor has a ground rod driven next to it with a copper wire to the exposed metal on the cover structure.
I'm testing 1.5vac from the water to any ground outside of the pool including ladder couplings and metal slide legs but not to the exposed metal on the automatic pool cover. There is a bond wire from the pump to a driven ground rod away from the pool and another bond wire that runs from the ground rod to the other end of the pool. It appears to go into the concrete to a light in the pool. I cannot find another bond wire on the other side of the pool. The voltage disappears once I disconnect the pump cord from the gfci. I used an analog multimeter and tested resistance from the exposed bond wire at the pump to all of the metal parts around the pool, including exposed coping where the paint had chipped. I'm showing zero resistance to these objects.
Due to the pump being part of the bonding loop, is it possible that the pool is bonded correctly yet still get stray voltage in the pool because its actually part of the loop? I've had the POCO out twice and their positive its not on their end.
Thanks for your help!
