Ok so I spend hours reading posts here 3 years ago when I started building my in ground concrete block pool. Finally I am getting this thing finished. Concrete blocks already have rebar and concrete. Everything done. Liner is in and water is half full. Started getting quotes this week for an electrician to hook up the equipment. First one says that he needs to ground the pump with two 8 ft rods in the ground. Ok cool. Second company says that not only do they need to ground the pump but the pool needs to be bonded. He says copper wire buried 6 inches down all the way around, connected to the pump and connected to the water through the skimmer box. Ok, sounds interesting so I looked it up. Today the third guys come and tell me it is too late to bond because the rebar is already there so it wouldnt work anyway.
So which is it? Should I have it done or is it too late if I cannot connect to the rebar?
