Moved from here.. Pentair Power Center Bonding Question
Sorry to revive an old post, but I’m having the same issue as the OP. It sounds to me that the conclusion to this thread was to connect the external ground to the pool bonding wire that is also connected to the pool pump... even though the directions seem to say not to do that?No you are not crazy and the Pentair instructions don't use US terms. You are correct. The internal screw is for the equipment grounding conductor -- the "ground wire". The external lug is for the bonding system. The 8 guage solid copper wire that connected to the lug on the pump case. A SWCG is part of the water circulatory system and must be connected to the bonding system.
You are also correct, I think on page 5 they are saying don't connect the pool bonding wire to the internal equipment grounding conductor screw terminal.
Man those instructions are bad.
