I am currently building a new home and I plan to place a perimeter ground
around the house and this will also encircle the pool.  The pool is adjacent
to the house.

My contractor raised the question of whether I should connect the perimeter
ground to the rebar that forms the pool structure.  He says the rebar will
be tied together with wire. ( I doubt that I will be able to get in and
assure these are good electrical contacts though.)  Any thoughts?

Also, should we drive a ground rod or two into the ground at the bottom of
the pool and tie these into the rebar cage?

The QTH is Florida east coast, 3 miles from the ocean.  The ground is sandy,
fairly dry, and the water table is 30 to 40 feet deep.

Comments and suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks,  Ed   KG4ARN
