When changing out my pump, I realized the booster motor did not have a bonding wire.
There is a solid wire bonded to the pump motor, but the casing has so much paint and is so old it will not fit through the fitting to continue on to the booster. Can I connect another piece of wire to finish the run to the booster? If so, would I use a wire nut and some liquid electrical tape? As an alternative, since the wire is long enough, can I strip the existing wire about 2'? This would cause it to be exposed from about an inch before the pump motor all the way to the booster.
