Happy Monday all,
For the installation of a permanently installed "above" ground pool, is equipotential bonding of the perimeter surface required?
Someone called for a quick estimate and I need to get some rough thoughts in my head when looking at the job (residential,single family).
In referencing 680.22, I'm thinking a single twist lock GFCI receptacle for a pool pump located 6' to 10' from the inside wall edge. And a GFCI convenience receptacle located 6' to 20' from the inside wall edge.
I also note 680.21, that "inside" the structure can be "regular" wiring methods....type nm for the pump, but I'm then assuming that "outside" would have to be in a conduit with an insulated grounding conductor.
Questioning the perimeter surface bond, but I'm also assuming bonding would be just from the motor to the metal framing of the pool.
I have to check, I'm not sure of the particulars if there will be a deck around the pool, but if not, how are the ladders (A frame removable) to get in and out of the pool addressed?
Thank you for your insight,
