I'm having a new deck installed right now and one of the guys installing the deck is also an electrician. When I got home from work today he called me over to one of the points on the pool that has the bonding wire attached to it and said "I hate to show you this but this was installed wrong". He went on to say that the bonding wire which runs from the back of the pump through the wire clip on the front of the pump then underground to a pool post which is around 7 feet away and then continues around the pool to 3 other posts is wrong. He says there should be one continuous "ring" around the pool with 5 "spokes" off of that ring 4 of which go to the metal flashing that's under the top of the posts cover and 1 that goes to the pump. My copper wire is one long wire that doesn't have spokes, it runs around the pool and at 4 points on the pool is bent then connected to the posts then bent back again and continues around back to the pump. Also his biggest concern was that the bonding wire is connected to the post which is aluminum not metal and so its not really bonded at all.
Hope this makes sense but now I'm wondering who to believe and what I should do. My setup did pass an electrical inspection. Anyone have thoughts especially about it being connected to aluminum and not metal?
Thanks in advance!
