    Intex Pool bonding

    Can the lugs be self tapping screws? The pump /filter I bought is a Hayward Pro Series S210T93S 21-Inch Got a great deal at amazon. This has to be bonded not like the regular intex pumps. For a 26 foot pool no deck plastic ladder what would be good estimate on bonding length for buying wire? pump is going to be about 1o feet at most from pool. Thanks

    What is metal? Must bond all metal parts to the pump.

    So yes you can use self taping screws so long as at least two threads are engaged in the material you are taping. NEC 250.8(A)(6)

    Attach bonding lugs to each metal upright. Make sure you have a water bond and a buried #8 solid copper wire surrounding the pool. More info search Mike holt illustrated NEC

    Whether or not the metal touches the pool or pool water is not determinate. If the pool is 42" deep or greater then it must comply with NEC 680.26. That requires all metal parts with a surface area of greater than 4 inches be attached to the equipotential bonding system.
