in-ground pool

bought a house with an existing in-ground pool. pool has a liner and the support walls seem to be made of wolmanized lumber. motor for pump/filter is not connected to ground, except via a three-prong plug, and on a GFI circuit breaker. questions--does pump motor need it's own ground wire? does chain-link fencing around the pool need to be grounded? if so, how? any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

The pump is correctly grounded through the plug. The chain link fence (if it is within ten feet og the pool) and any other metal within ten feet og the pool need to be bonded to the pump. Examples of other metal are diving board, ladder, steps, rebar in any concrete, etc.
