    Gound Bonding Wire

    I am remodeling pool and the bond wire is inside concrete and since I am removing concrete, I need to run a new bond wire. What size wire should be used to do this?

    I am bonding ladder, rails, light etc.

    Thanks
    Tom

    #8 solid copper. You also need to use connectors rated for use in bonding systems when connecting to the old wire (if there is any old wire remaining in place).
