    How close to the pool is this drain?

    Plastic way to go. There are few companies that makes custom stone grates if that's appealing.

    You could do that but again the connections will be difficult. Why not push for plastic. The metal seems absolutely insane.

    Yes exactly that. I would need to run a jumper between each grate
    If not a jumper, a guaranteed-not-to-fail clip or lug that will re-connect a section of grate to the bonding system when it's replaced. Sort of like the lugs on the back of a meter. And this clip/lug will not fail after years of being removed and replaced by non-electrician life guards &c.

    You'd have to have a continuous bar along the entire trench, with clips/lugs spaced to accept the grate, otherwise removing a section of grate would remove the bonding as well.

    Wow, that would be a pain. IMO, you should insist that the grates be plastic

    Pool bonding

    There is a metal grate on a floor trench drain around a swimming pool. It goes around the entire pool with lengths of 10' for the metal grate. The trench drain itself is plastic. Anyone find a clean & quick way to bond these before? I will need to run a jumper between each section I plan to penetrate the side of the trench drain to somehow bond it.

    TIA
Working...
