Hi Barry...
I had to think about this one for a few minutes... I would certainly be
concerned about using the ground-system/shell of the swimming pool to
dissipate the current surge from a strike on the tower... In all probability
there would not be enough current through the shell to either be a shock
hazard to swimmers, or to cause steam pocket explosions in the damp
concrete... B U T ... It is too important to chance.... I would not tie the
grounding system into the pool....
