Hello to All,
First off I am new here But have been lurking long enough to read just about every post. Loads of information from very helpful people without any attitude.......very nice.
I have a 16 x 32 IG vinyl pool w/ polymer(?) walls & aluminum coping. Moved here about 10 years ago & never used the pool ( unusable when we moved in). I've had 4 estimates done & decided to do some of the work myself. I had a lot of questions & some have already been answered through this forum and the rest I'll ask in time.
I want to add a light and ladder on the deep end to the pool (none exist now) & need to replace the concrete on the deep end anyway & I do not see any bonding wire coming out of the ground anywhere around the pool. There is a 8 AWG wire from the chain link fence around the pool to the pump but that is it. I was hoping when I removed the concrete I would see where the coping is bonded & go from there. I've also looked in the NEC book & could only find info on concrete pools w/ rebar & vinyl pools w/ galvanized walls. I estimate the pool is 25 yrs old, is it possible the pool is not bonded because of age or because there is nothing in the pool that is metal except the coping?
Thanks in advance,
