question on grounding plumbing
 
I have some plumbing fixtures that are electrically isolated from grounding because of the use of plastic pipe. Should the fixtures that are past the PVC pipe be grounded?

Thanks,
Stuart

Water pipes can sometimes be the grounding electrode but the plumbing itself isn't required to be grounded.

What you are talking about is properly called bonding, not grounding.

Since the faucets are isolated by plastic pipe there is no need to bond them
