I have a "no-bonding wire issue" with the pool currently under construction. The contractor "forgot" to leave four connection points to the rebar cage before pouring the concrete on the walls. The only copper wire installed so far, is the one connected to the bond lug of the Pentair Gunite niche. However, the contractor still needs to pour a shallow (35 cm deep) section that will be used to put sun chairs and access the concrete steps to go inside the pool.
In this 2.00m x 2.50m section, the only rebar still exposed that comes into contact with the rest of the pool rebar cage (walls and floor), are the ones that will be used to pour the 3 (45 cm high) walls around it.
At this point, can I:
A. Still connect this section of the pool to the external wire loop... and be "OK pool rebar bonded" ?...
B. Start thinking on getting a small rotary hammer drill to find the rebar (say on the other corners of the pool) and then connect the clamps & wire to the cage, then patch it, then connect it to the bonding loop ?, or...
C. Forget about breaking concrete to find the pool reinforcement steel cage, since the pool water will not come into contact with the steel cage embeded in the concrete, and just focus on making the loop around the pool and properly bonding the niche, pump, deck (as this rebar also comes into contact with all of the pool's reinforcement steel cage)... ?
Thanks in advance for your help !!!
