Im installing an intex pool 24ft by 52inches. Im reading pools over 42 inches need to be bonded. Also people are saying because of that intex pools need to be bonded.
Two things, 1) the original filter is double insulated. And the second one i just purchased is an intex sand filter with gfci built in and doesn't have a bonding port nor says anything about bonding.
The intex pool frame has plastic on each tube where it inserts into the other, and a plastic pin to hold in place. So the frame to my knowledge is not a complete conductor of electricity, so in my perspective, bonding the frame at 4 points seems improper. Does the frame still need to be bonded given the setup?
Also if the frame doesn't need it, does the water and ladder need to be? If so, do i still need to create a halo of copper wire around the pool?
