(5) Metal Wiring Methods and Equipment. Metalsheathed

cables and raceways, metal piping, and all fixed

metal parts except those separated from the pool by a permanent

barrier shall be bonded that are within the following

distances of the pool:

(1) Within 1.5 m (5 ft) horizontally of the inside walls of

the pool

(2) Within 3.7 m (12 ft) measured vertically above the

maximum water level of the pool, or any observation

stands, towers, or platforms, or any diving structures

Yep, in this picture it should be bonded.
