chrisprickett Posted July 7, 2005 Report Share Posted July 7, 2005 I'm having trouble understanding why, in most situations I see, the need to bond a gas pool heater. The unit sits on a concrete slab. The pool piping to and from the heater are plastic. The gas piping is plastic underground. G2411.1 (310.1) Gas pipe bonding. Each above-ground portion of a gas piping system that is likely to become energized shall be electrically continuous and bonded to an effective ground-fault current path. Gas piping shall be considered to be bonded where it is connected to gas utilization equipment that is connected to the equipment grounding conductor of the circuit supplying that equipment. The above code reference (emphasis mine) seems to say that it is bonded by being connected to equipment that is grounded. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
