    2nd Story Pool Bonding

    We are currently installing a Mod Pool which is a shipping container swimming pool. This pool is being installed on the 2nd story of a house. Around the pool is a deck built with wooden 2x12's with a plastic frame mounted on top that ceramic tile fits in. Do I still need to install an equipotential grid around the pool since none of the decking comes into contact with the earth?

    This is a good question. Unfortunately the code does not give exception so IMO it would still need the bonding. Personally I would contact the local authority having jurisdiction and get their take on it. It would appear absolutely worthless in this scenario.

    The are many pools on roofs so I would have to think that someone in the forum has had experience with this.
    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

      That's an interesting question. I can reach out to my pool colleagues and get their input.

      How far is the wood deck above the base the pool is planned sit on? What is that base material? Steel beams? Concrete?
      I agree with Dennis. You still need the perimeter bonding.
