In my area they used to let you do this.
A couple years ago we got a new inspector for the area and he no longer allows heaters to be the water bond. He will still allow a short section of brass or copper pipe in a suction or return line near the pool but, likes to see a waterbug in the skimmer or a light niche.

Resistance = resistance. Impedance is how A/C circuits react to resistance.
If you have a 40yo pool with copper piping your water bond could just be the pipe. Also if you have a light in your pool the metal light housing acts an acceptable bonding point for your water assuming the housing was connected to the bonding loop. For people with vinyl liners and plastic pipe and no metal ladders or lights special attention must be paid to add a dedicated water bond point. I doesn't hurt to have a dedicated water bond fitting for any pool but it isn't always needed as something may already be doing the job. As danpik said it just has to a min of 9 square inches of surface area of corrosion resistant metal in contact with the water connected to the bonding loop to meet the NEC code rules. They don't specify how or where it must be installed.
Counting on a heater to be your bonding point is troublesome as most heaters can be valved out and or removed from the piping thus eliminating your water bond.
