Default Bonding of above ground pool shell

Am I interpreting the code correctly saying that the shell must be bonded at 4 evenly spaced locations around the contour of pool? And having trouble making sense of how far from the outside walls the conductor needs to be? And at least 4 inches below grade.

Perimeter bonding is 18 to 24in. from the inside wall of the pool, within or under the perimeter surface, 4 to 6in below the subgrade.

Don't forget the rest of the bonding requirements...poolwater, metal w/in 5ft, pump, etc.

Yea understand everything else but if you didn't use alternative for above ground what's the non-alternative?

i'll try to help you out

He asked you what code cycle you were on, What year NEC code is your state using your in NJ so we are still using 2008

Now as for this "alternative"method, There is only one way to bond a pool, The code does not give you different options. The only varying option you have is how to bond the water, I prefer the bondsafe 680 plate for the skimmer but you can also get the water bonder fitting for the pool pump hose.
