i am going to bond our pool before I back fill it. Im going to use #8 wire all the way around and connect it to 4 points of the pool plus the screw on the pump. On the water bonding... If I bond the pump... water travels though the pump, and in fact stays in the pump and lines when the pump is off, at least on the suction side, so since the water is in the pump, in the line, and the pump is bonded, then wouldnt the water already be bonded too since it is in the pump and lines? Seems to me that a water bond through the skimmer as I see most done is overdoing it, since its already bonded through the pump.
