Iím embarking on installing a return-to-deck pool, figure 4, stainless steel handrail, by myself (DIY project) this Memorial Day weekend. I would like to solicit any tricks of the trade, suggestions or cautions before itís too late. I have an in ground concrete pool with a concrete cool deck.
Some of my questions are how to connect to the Equipotential Bonding Grid and how large of the decking and dirt should I remove in order to have a safe anchor?
I am leaning toward core drilling the concrete deck with a drill bit just larger than the each anchor's diameter, then bonding each anchor to the concrete using Hilti-H 150 Max-SD Adhesive. I feel it will do the fastening job, but not the Equipotential Bonding. How hard is it to find the existing 8 AWG wire? Is there a trick to finding and connecting to it?
