    Electrical Pictures

    Hello all,

    First time poster and soon to be first time pool owner.

    Our IG pool will be going in next week. I will be taking on the electrical and bonding work. I am not an electrician, but have done quite a bit of electrical work over the years. I believe I have a thorough understanding of the electrical and bonding work that needs to be completed for the pool. I have two questions I am hoping someone can help me with:

    1. Do ladders, diving boards, pumps, SWGs, and heat pumps generally come with bonding lugs on them or just places to attach a bonding lug?

    2. Does anyone have a picture of the the type of bonding lug used on this equipment or especially the type of connector used to bond metal pool walls and rebar in a concrete deck.

    Thank you for any assistance.

    Equipment that needs bonding generally has a bonding lug on it.

    Metal ladders you bond the in deck anchors, diving boards you bond the jig that goes in the deck, pumps there is a lug, as with most swg, and heatpumps.

    Thank you both for the information.

    Could anyone help me with a picture of the bonding lug/connector you used to pond the pool walls and deck rebar.

    Thank you again.

    No rebar in our slab, so I can't help with that. Also I don't have a close up of the bonding clip, but perhaps these will help with the overall bonding project.

    Hope that helps some,

    This is what you will want to connect the bonding wire to the steel walls/ coping. I put one on every coping and/or steel wall piece. I just used some self taping screws like used to attach the coping to the walls. ... Id=3370336

    And I used these where I had splice the cooper wire onto the walls. I ran a solid continuous wire from SWG, pump, light, and all the way back around pool. Then spliced line to attach to walls. Some inspectors do not allow splices and some do so be sure to check. ... Id=3370322
