No, not from the pump. The pump (what moves the water) and the filter (usually ~24 inch diameter tank filled with sand) will be located away from the pool. The electrical connection is at the pump, but there is no electricity from the pump near the pool; the lines for the circulation system only carry water. If the pool and equipment are not grounded and bonded there may be a possibility of shock or tingly sensation. There is much more of a danger if the above applies and you stand in damp ground and touch the pump motor.
