So, what's the answer to stranded or solid? With the wording "not smaller than a No. 8 solid", is the code describing the actual diameter of the conductor, with a stranded being larger than a solid of the same gage?
I read that as 8 Ga solid or a larger stranded size. The only place I know of that allows stranded 8ga for pool bonding is the bond wire in the PVC raceway to a wet niche forming shell. You can use stranded for equipment grounding (not the same thing).
