It is not required to connect to anything else. That is why the section (680-22) is called "bonding" and not "grounding". The purpose is to make sure that every conductive object at the pool is at the same voltage.

BKLYNN,

Hello to a fellow New Yorker!

Also connect to the following items if they exist:
  • Groung Lug on the pump
  • Ladder (unless totally plastic)
  • other metal objects within 5 feet such as Chain link fence, metal framed windows, doors, leaders and gutters.

BKLYNN,

Yes, I'm in Suffolk. (Centereach)
I'm not sure what you mean. I'm not familiar with anything like that.
