Default Perimiter Bonding of Pools NEC 2017

I am getting back into pools and have a quick question. According to the NEC 2017 I know that I have to run the #8 bonding wire around the perimeter and contour of the pool if it is in ground but do I still need to do this if it is an above ground pool?

Thanks in Advance

It depends whether the above ground pool is, by definition, considered a permanent pool. So if the pool is above ground and 42" or less deep then you would not need the equipotential bonding.

Permanently Installed Swimming, Wading, Immersion, and
Therapeutic Pools. Those that are constructed in the ground
or partially in the ground, and all others capable of holding
water in a depth greater than 1.0 m (42 in.), and all pools
installed inside of a building, regardless of water depth,
whether or not served by electrical circuits of any nature.
