    Question:
    Working on a job site and the pool is being converted to chlorine generation via salt.
    This is NOT a new install. Pool water piping was being changed and converted to chlorine generation.
    A bond wire was run completely around the pool attaching to all corners of the steel wall pool, ladder cups, diving board, and then on to all the pool equipment. A sacrificial anode was also installed and the bond was terminated in the pool panel.
    The pool panel is mounted on the outside wall of a pool house and the pool panel gets its feed from the main panel in the garage. The pool house has a separate panel that is also fed from the garage. The pool house panel has a ground rod.
    Here's my question. Do we tie the bonding wire onto the ground rod or not?
    The pool panel does NOT have a ground rod.
    The pool house panel DOES have a ground rod.
    The two panels are completely separate of each other.

    Thanks in advance.

    Anybody?
    Just to clarify, we are NOT touching the electrical.
    Pavers and pool piping have been replaced.
    Electrical is the way it was when it was installed.

    All bonding related to the pool should return to the pool panel and should not be interconnected to the pool house panel ground rods.
