    Bonding a booster pump

    I don't mean to hijack this thread but I do have a question about bonding (not grounding). When it comes up or is discussed I always see info about bonding the main pump and other parts of system. What about a booster pump or auxiliary pumps?

    Yes, everything that is either metal or electrical that comes in contact with the pool water or is located within a couple of feet of the pool must be bonded (at least for permanently installed pools).
