    it's imperative to make sure egc from/to pool stuff is 100%. it's one reason why i advocate that the grid be tied to egc at pump and another location (2 or more separate ties, etc), thus if the bond grid gets energized it will be brought back down to egc value, earth/neutral, and hopefully a ocpd/gfi trips. when you lose the egc the bond grid is ok as long as you dont bridge the ckt near the edge of the grid, etc.
    I’m with you on this - bond the heck out of it.
    Faults don’t always cooperate with physics. For a few extra bucks you get a lot more ‘insurance’.

    And you are welcome to do so, nothing prohibits exceeding what NEC wants for minimum requirement here.

    If you go and decide to dance with a gorilla the dance ain't over till the gorilla decides it's over.

    maybe it was meant that faults dont always manifest in ways we expect them to. nothing escapes physics

    Exactly, pure sarcasm on my part -
    There are lots of grounding experts out there, but faults can do the unexpected and faults can kill
