We need to have a new water line put in from the meter in the parking strip to the house. We've recently had a new electrical panel put in and the electricians pounded two grounding rods into the ground outside our house. Because of this, will the house be just as well grounded if we get plastic pipe as if we get metal?
The two ground rods, assuming they were at least 8 feet long, at least 6 feet apart, and driven in almost flush, are good and sufficient for grounding.
The water pipe, if metal, would still have had to have been connected to the breaker panel as if it were a ground rod.
States can help recovery from hurricanes and tornadoes by not requiring due digence or prompt and timely correction of substandard conditions, and by providing continued liability insurance where companies drop homeowners.
