    So final question concerning the bonding wire. It is currently 18" from the water as required. I have several longer sections around that were meant to tie into say a diving board, ladders, etc. We are not adding any other metal items around the pool at all. No railing/ladders, etc. Should I...

    Yeah, from what I've read here I'm definitely planning the collar to be about 3/4" narrower so that the coping stones overhang it a little bit. I think the 4000 w/ fiber should be plenty good.

    Okay, with the inspection complete, we've begun the project. Starting with the coping collar, couple pics of the area trenched out. I'm about 7" down from the top of the pool wall. Plan is 2" of underlay, and 5" concrete collar. I do have a few questions I'd like to sort out before completing...

    UPDATE: Had the final inspection today and the electrical passed as is! I think the electrician was trying to rip me off...so glad I investigated instead of just agreeing with him! And thanks for the code help jamjam, felt good to be knowledgeable on the subject in case of issues.

    So, the information I had received is straight from the electrician. He had forgot to put a ground rod last year and when he came to do it, he mentioned the code had updated and we'd have to add the copper mesh grid, specifically because we are doing a paver patio (which won't have rebar...

    Thank you for the knowledge. I'll definitely speak with the town directly after I ask them what they use for their code source.

    Wait, so the 2020 code says my 8 awg is actually compliant? If so the electrician straight up lied to me to try and get the extra work. He referenced 2020 code. I'll detail this later from a computer. Doing my own recon now, thanks! Thanks Liz, we love the water appearance from the liner...

    So, have a hiccup in the pool coping project (well, actually pre-project). Since I am doing a paver patio, the town is requiring a copper mesh grid 3' out all around. Currently, there is 8 AWG bare copper all around the pool, which I guess was enough before code update in 2020 (Massachusetts)...

    Great, thanks...it was originally going to be cantilever edged poured concrete patio, so probably explains the set up.

    Cool, figured I'd have to knock those down at the very least. Not too hard, about half of them came off on their own! But yeah, the track would stay, I mean replace a liner in the future. Thanks again

    A question about the liner track (pic attached). You'll see some of the gaps on the track have been caulked...and some used to have caulk but it broke off. Is the purpose of this caulking to keep the mortar/glue/concrete/etc from getting into that track path for when the liner is someday...

    Good ideas, I'll look into those details a bit more and see what would work best...hoping to break ground in the next week or so. I'm sure more questions will pop up! Thanks
