Grounding a pool is serious business, there are many risks if this is not done right. Grounding also varies depending city, county, state, country. For starters, you can't have a good enough ground for your pool. This is one case where more is better. As a general rule, you could drive a 10 ft copper ground rod at each corner of the pool. Then you could drive more 10 ft copper rods at each end and the middle. On each metal pool stanchion you have to put a suitable sized grounding lug that's threaded into the metal. You then start a #6 bare copper wire from the first rod and clamp and run it continuously through each stanchion.

You then tie the end back into the first rod creating a ground loop/grid. Again, this varies from place to place. Here is my suggestion. Call your local electrical inspection department, and see what they want done. Before it's closed in, weather decked or concrete it has to be inspected for your safety. When in doubt, always consult a licensed electrician from your area for local rules.

Don't make this a DIY project. Call at least three certified electrical contractors. Ask each if a permit has to be taken out. If they say "no permit is needed" then move on to the next contractor. If no permit is taken out then there is no need for an electrical inspection.

You want the project to be inspected. With this inspection certificate, it will give you peace of mind that if anything goes wrong in the future in regards to the pool, you will have documentation that the job was done correctly and that it passed an electrical inspection.


Don't be afraid to call the electrical inspection department to ask about pool regulation in your area and qualified contractors in your area.
