sump near inground pool

Hello all. I plan on installing a sump pit on the side of my house to remedy a drainage issue. The area which it will be located is 16' from my my inground pool and about 6' from the pool filter. The sump pump will be a .5 hp 115v plugged into a gfci outlet on the pool pump control box. Since the sump will be this close to the pool and filter, would it have to be bonded to the rest of the equipment even though it's not part of it? Thanks

No bond necessary. Bonded items are: metal items within 5 feet of the water's edge and metal items that pool water circulates through.
