    Bonding?

    Well I thought I did a great job with my equipment pad relocation........ until I noticed this word keep coming up "Bonded" well guess what if my pool was, its not anymore . Now I do think I recall seeing the wire but thought it was just a grounding wire that I would move to the new location with a new ground round. Does everyone think I should redig up my yard and find that wire to connect to my pump? or will I be ok without it? (And yes I already probably know the answer to this but figured it was worth a shot

    Yea, that should be connected.

    The bonding wire just needs to be connected to the rest of the bonding, which goes all the way around the pool. It doesn't need to be connected to the specific wire that it used to be connected to. Depending on your situation, it is possible that you can find some other location that has a bonding wire that is easier to access.

    I'm pretty sure hunting that wire down will be the easiest, I hope. I'm so stupid, stupid, stupid! Dang! Thanks Jason

    Great.

    Now connect it up to the equipment with #8 solid copper and approved bonding connectors (normally split bolts).
