Hi to all that have been replying to this post. Not sure if this should be a new post or not.
I have a similar problem, only my shocks are only at the water when reaching in to clean the basket. It has happen randomly, but recently more frequently. I had an issue with the impeller loosing up, when fixing it there showed some water leakage from shaft seal. This might be why it has increased in frequency. This pool is very old, 1940's or 50's, it does not have a bond wire to the motor casing or access to any re-bar or grid or pool bonding connection, everything surrounded by lots of very thick concrete. I see 22 stray volts at the pump when turned off.
I want to bond the casing and need guidance what to connect it to. This pump is in a separate concrete block room about 30 feet from the pool, but there is a surge tank in the room. I have easy access to the water in the surge tank, copper water supply lines that are buried parallel to the pool (about 15 feet) and I can put a grounding rod inside the room fairly easy.
Can one of you guide me to the best and most practical way to bond this pump?
Thanks soooo much.
