My pool has temporarily passed inspection. Apparently Massachusetts passed a new law that the water must be grounded on above ground pools. Basically the pool stores and the filter companies want nothing to do woith this and leave it up to the elecricians to come up with something. The pool store said that some electricians have been sort of coming up or making thier own part for this. Basically they claim it is made from some sprinkler system parts and is some sort of 6" double treaded brass nipple that connectes to the filter hose and then is also connected to the grounding wire?? I honestly have no idea what they are talking about. All I know is that the electrical inspector for the town I live in said even though he thinks it is ridiculous, he has to follow the law and tell us to ground the water, then he said Good luck figuring out how!
Well, my electrician who has been researching this just called and said he found a $92 part that gets drilled into the skimmer. I really don't want to do that, I like my skimmer just the way it is!
Any thoughts or ideas on the best way to ground my water?
