So maybe I'm way over thinking this, but it's bugging me...our pool deck will be completed in the spring. It will be a paver patio. My understanding is when they are doing this, they will extend the bonding wire around the whole pool, as far as the can out from the pool and bury it under the pavers. So in theory, I'll have a long ring around the whole pool. Well, Murphy's Law always applies to me it seems. When the pool builder goes to drill out all the anchor holes for the mesh winter safety cover, how does he avoid hitting the wire? I would imagine, with the number of anchors I have (straps every 3'), that his odds of hitting the ground wire are actually pretty good. If he severs it, that wouldn't be good.
Do they not worry about it, or can they somehow "locate" the wire under the pavers? Or when the patio is being done, should I take some measurements of where the wire is so they can hopefully avoid it? I watched them install a cover this fall on my neighbors pool, and his company just started drilling away...and for the record, the anchors mount inside longer "tubes" since it's pavers, so they are longer than the standard 2" anchors..
