    Bonding permanently installed swimming pools AKA above ground swimming pools

    We have recently installed electrical systems for a few above ground swimming pools. We are coming across some that have 4-#8 bare copper ground pigtails for meeting the bonding requirements. In this case, can we use split bolts to bond the 4 points of the pool or must we use irreversible crimps?

    You can use split bolts.

    If we can't use split bolts I'm in trouble a 1000 times over!
    If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time!

    May have to check if your split bolts are listed for direct burial if it is the case in your situation having them buried.
