I had some issues with improper bonding work done by my electrician. They tell me that they have rectified all issues and passed the electrical inspection (the inspector didn't come out but they sent pictures to him). I just noticed that my bonding wire is connected to my pump with a zip tie and I'm wondering if this looks acceptable, or if my electrician messed up again. Thank you for any advice!

The actual one should be on a lug somewhere towards the back on the underside or under the plastic housing. That looks like it’s just holding the wire out of the way.

I think code also states that the bonding wire has to be solid not stranded.

There's no other connection and I dont see a lug on the pump. Do you know if Hayward pumps come with a bonding lug or should the electrician have provided one?

What about under the plastic rear cover. Should just be one screw holding it on. ? @JamesW is a master at these things

It should be below the back motor cover.
