See below for pool being installed. Was planning on doing most of the work myself and/or through the help of friends (with skills) to perform all electrical work. Found that the inspector states that homeowners are not allowed to bond the pool themselves! ***? Getting quotes... this is outrageously expensive (for connecting a clamp to wire).
Need to know if there are any repercussions (now or later) if I were to just do the work myself? I planned to take digital pictures of the entire bonding (to mesh and rebar, etc.) process, before and after concrete pour! And simply make the 220 breaker addition, line, and sub-panel hookups and connections, etc. as DIY.
What happens if I don't get a permit? And therefore "inspected"?
