derater,

If there's nothing to bond, there's not much you can do about it. BTW, this may be classified as a storeable pool (see 680.2 Definition of Storable Swimming Pool)

Storable pools have much less requirements than 'Permanent' ones do (see 680.30 - part III)

Guys am I correct about this? I believe you are not actually looking for metal to ground the pool. You are looking to bond any metal that happens to be part of the pool. Also as Bill said read up on article 680 most of the info is pretty clear.

Thanks, I didn't notice the 'Grounding' reference there. Yes, the connection to the metal parts of a pool is not done for the purpose of Grounding it.
