Ground from extetior meter


I'm a bystander on reading threads. On every site I go on grounding is a big subject seems like there's a lot of different views.
Why is what I'm trying to figure out ?

Sometimes I think Greg is just a troll as he sits back and enjoys the show…. I find it much easier just to ignore his comments than give him the attention by responding to them.

And once again a good thread has been derailed. Next it will "moderated"..

To the op. The grounding electrode conductor has to be repaired or replaced in compliance with the NEC.

But that could really be a disservice to anyone that does not know the informationis incorrect. Tough call, refute the information or let it go and people get the wrong impression.

Why is it derailing for many of us attempting to get the correct information posted? Incorrect info should be refuted IMO.

I agree with the response to the OP. But I have spent 43 years in this trade and from early on I found there was a misconception even among electricians and engineers regarding this subject. I took it upon my self to learn what is right and what is bogus and when I can I try to impart what little knowledge I have to others.

To stand by and let misconceptions and untruths be posted is, in my opinion wrong.

Sorry my post wasn't clearer. It is not the pro's who are derailing the thread. I think Greg's intentions are good but he is by no means a professional electrician. He does on occasion provide good information.

I completely agree that bad information needs to be rebutted every time.

For the short time i have been here I must say Greg has given me a few times to stop and think about what I am posting.

I seldom do residential, though I occasionally will do investigative work for insurance companies. Some of the newer codes have slipped by me and I find I have to pull out the NEC to review some of the issues brought up here.

I concur, I just wish Greg could accept when he is defeated, must be a pride thing but we are all here to learn, I stay interested just to keep most of the information refreshed and not, I know it's in there somewhere in the code….

you also have to keep in mind that not every state has adopted every new code, Connecticut is still on the 2005, which I love, but it can make it tricky to give accurate advice to someone on the 2011 NEC.
