    ? About Bonding My AboveGround Pool

    I am installing a above ground pool,it will be about a foot and a half buried in the ground. i want to bond it. i need to know what type of wire to use. #8 stranded?solid? does it have to be bare wire? do i loop it to each post and connect with a lug? if so then i would loop and connect with a lug to each pool post right? then any other metal within 5 feet of the pool also right? and then connect to the filter lug? do i use a ground rod?
    Thanks,
    Bill

    It has to be bare #8 solid. It also has to be connected at four places around the pool as well as to any other metal equipment touching or within five feet of the water. You have to use connectors rated for bonding.
