I hadn't really thought much of it since I bought this house earlier this year, but I just wonder if something is wrong with how my pump is grounded and / or bonded.
I have an in-ground pool with a liner.
The equipment is 20 to 30 feet away.
The pump has a grounding wire attached to it that just goes into the ground between a couple patio bricks.
And no bonding wire attached from it to anything else. There's a bonding lug on my heater, but nothing connected.
I tried searching around the forum and a lot of posts mentioned the grounding wire going back to the panel somehow. (sorry, I'm electrically illiterate) And of course, everything should be bonded, right?
I also have a light in the pool; the switch for it has a GFCI outlet next to it, but it doesn't appear to be even testable. I push the trip or the reset button and nothing seems to happen. Should I be concerned there?
I've been swimming all summer with no incidents, but if anything sounds off, of course I'm just going to search for a pool expert electrician and get an inspection just to make sure things are up to snuff.
Thanks for any advice in advance.
