So you're asking about rebar (which is a reasonable question), and someone is spouting off about "grounding". I have NEVER seen rebar used in grounding. Drakeslayer - is that a Pennsylvania thing?
I'm around pools almost every day.
xtreem3d was initially referring to rebar that is used to reinforce the concrete. Because the topic was about cutting concrete. Maybe I'm wrong. Am I correct?? Rebar used as reinforcement acts as a skeleton for a concrete slab.
We just finished working with an old pool deck this week that had NO rebar and no Wire reinforcing the concrete.
However - most pool decks do have rebar and wire reinforcement.
And yes - the topic of "GROUNDING" is important. Because many contractors will rip out old concrete decking and install pavers.
