    Bonding Fiberglass Pool

    I know this has probably been mentioned several times on this forum but cant seem to find this exactly.

    If you have a non-conductive pool service such as fiberglass, do you have to introduce a copper grid around the pool and then bond the copper grid?

    Or, do you just not provide any metal and therefore no bonding is required?

    In this situation, there is no metal hand rail, and the LED light is plastic.

    Storable pools do not require an equipotential grid, permanent ones do.
    Electricians do it until it Hertz!

    You still need to do the perimeter bonding
    They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
    She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me
    I can't help it if I'm lucky

    And probably water bonding if the pump does not take care of that for you.

    Yep, #8 around the perimeter, to pump and water bond
    If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time!

    Pool light is plastic, but there are parts made for the pool lines that will bond the water

    That may be true for nicheless pool lights.
