Bonding a basketball hoop?

Recommended Posts


this was stolen straight from Norm on the swimming pool forum:

"NEC 680.26(B)(5) refers to all metal within 5 feet of the waterline. A metal gutter downspout would be included and, therefore, must be bonded.


Just passin' it from one place to 'nother

Just a question to clarify, does this apply to temporary objects as well as permanently installed. My experience with those nets and how this one appears, you can remove it at will (it just slides into the hole). If it was bonded, then that alone would make it permanent right? Or would the hole it slides into be grounded?
