Ajp2927,

Your disconnect should be grounded at the box. The enclosure should serve as the ground connection. If you were to open the disconnect box, you'd likely find a ground wire attached to a ground terminal inside the case. This ground wire should be used when attaching your well pump to ground.

There may be two ground terminals inside your disconnect. One should be used by the power supply wire coming from the breaker box. The second ground screw should be attached to the power wire heading to your well pump.

You should check to be sure that your disconnect box is grounded back to the main circuit breaker box.

In any case, I wouldn't attempt to ground the pump using a copper grounding rod.

Joel ....
