I recently serviced the shaft seal for my Polaris booster pump. Afterward, having reattached electrical connections, while I was reattaching the bonding wire to the motor housing, I noticed that my Hayward H400 ED1 natural gas heater (electronic ignition) is not bonded. Looked through the manual (Thanks previous homeowner!!!) and there is no mention of bonding. Searched the internet and found a wealth of info on the subject, including user/installation/service manuals for later model Hayward H series gas heaters with electronic ignition. All these later model manuals devote a page to the issue of bonding.
Perhaps there was a transition in the code to include heaters utilizing electronic ignition (since they utilize power in contrast to millivolt piloted heaters) just after my H400 ED1 was installed.
Anyone care to state whether or not I should integrate my H400 into the bonding grid??? I am inclined to do this.
If it is necessary, how should it be accomplished? Is a bonding lug with wire attached to the heater housing sufficient (opposite end of wire attached to motor bonding wire(s))?
Thanks for any consideration and replies!
