Hello all, new to the forum but have been lurking for a couple months. I have learned so much already. I recently purchased a 16 x 48 Ultra frame and am now in the midst of choosing equipment upgrades (probably Hayward 1hp pump and 19" sand filter). I also plan to get a heater but haven't decided between natural gas and a heat pump. I plan to hard plumb everything. Thanks to this forum, I feel confident in my ability to make informative decisions. My question is, Do i need to bond everything? Seems like some people do, and some don't. I now have safety concerns. Would it say anything in the pool manual about bonding? (Pool hasn't been delivered yet)... I just want a safe pool and I'm sure all the headaches will be worth it in the end. Any thoughts? Also, I will be getting an electrician in but I doubt he'll know anything about bonding an Intex Pool. Thanks in advance for any advice.
