Pool was installed Monday. Now I'm overwhelmed with what to do next. We still need electricity at the pool site. How long can I wait until I start the pump and filter? Should I go ahead and run an extension cord until we can get an electrician out here? Someone told me using an extension cord would "burn up the pump." If it's only for a week, wouldn't that be okay?
Also, the electrician I spoke with said I only need to bond the water - with an attachment at the skimmer. My research had led me to believe I needed wire circling the pool and attached at 4 points. Now I'm confused about the bonding.
Pool looks great, but there is still so much to do. I had no idea the installer would leave my yard in such a wreck. Wish I had a Bobcat so I could smooth all that dirt out. Also, it looks like I will need some sort of retaining wall or french drain around the high side of the pool.
Thanks in advance for any info/advice about the electrical.
