My pool build was completed about two months ago. We just recently added a fence around the pool though so I want to bond it to the pool since in a few areas, it is closer than 5'. I was thinking of just connecting it to the wire that is coming out of my deck and goes to the pool equipment. There is one area of the fence that has a gate but that is just on my patio and is more than 5' from the pool. That part of the fence is disconnected from the rest by some columns on my patio so there is just one continuous section of the fence that is closer than 5'. What I am unsure of is what pieces I need to properly bond the fence. I did pick up some #8 copper wire and was going to use the following two items to attach the wire.
Use this to connect the wire that is already running to the pool equipment:
Use this to connect the wire to the fence:
Is this the right thing to use to clamp to the fence? Does it need to be copper or does it not matter?
Am I on the right track? I can provide pics if that will make things clearer.
