    Really? More home work? Cool..... I could complicate a tuna sandwich, I probably would have to start by a thorough explanation of electrical bonding theory, To really understand that I would have to move on to electronic field structure and the properties of matter and how they relate to the structural properties of lattice constants and elastic constants. Maybe ending with phonons and their part in electrical and thermal conductivity. I still haven't started operation find the Node with Mr. Garrett yet...

    What'cha wasting time for? I have a pool to dive for an inspection today and would like to know i am safe getting in the water :)
    As far as Garrett and the Node goes, your real world test is very important and i spoke of our discussion to a manufacturer and we are both anxious. Wish you the best of luck on the Node.

    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.

    And speaking of GROUNDING, I'm gonna say something else.

    Instead of Paver Pete talking about door hangers for 45 minutes at the Techo-bloc Showcases, he should talk about grounding paver pool decks.

    I wasn't sure if there would be wire or rebar in a pool deck...was mostly making the poster aware so he didn't ruin a diamond blade
