My pool heater, pump (which sit on a concrete pad) and the control box for my Duoclear (which is mounted nearby on a wooden fence) are all connected with a bare copper wire. Is this bonded? The wire doesn't touch the ground just connects all three pieces of equipment.
Also, on the other side of the pool from where the equipment pad is, there is about a foot of bare copper wire coming out of the concrete deck that is just sitting on top of the soil. Is this bonding the pool or something? Should I bury it, or stick it to a metal stake and insert the stake into the ground?
Should mention that this wire comes out of the concrete right where the metal receiver thingys (anchors??) are that the ladder gets inserted to...maybe something to do with that? The ladder anchors are set in the concrete.
Thanks. So far (in four years - fifth season just starting) no one has been electrocuted.
