    Grounding stake

    I have a grounding stake i installed for another reason yeas ago about 5 feet fro my pool. Do you think it smart to include this in my bonding circle?

    The bonding loop isn't required to be grounded but it is allowed. Hooking the loop to the ground rod won't hurt anything and may help.

    Question about bonding / electricity

    Thanks. It's not a rod connected to the house. It's alone lol

    Technically if it's within 5' of the pool it's required by code to be bonded. It's just incidental that it happens to be a ground rod.

    Grounding stake

    Works for me was installed for a portable generator. To hard to remove so I left it in. No it can be a happy part off pool bonding
