water bond


you mean to bond your electrical panel to the water pipe coming into your house?

if so, I dont think there is a kit but here are a few pointers

1. you must be comfortable working inside your panel to do this (shut off the main when working on the panel)
2. Generally use #4 copper wire (bare or insultated, I used green insulated) unbroken from the main panel neutral bus to the water pipe within 5 feet of its entrance to the house. Install jumpers over water meter (you can connect your wire above and below the meter or install a separate length of #4 copper for the jumper wire) and between cold and hot water at the water heater.
3. use UL listed clamps to connect to the pipe
4. if all your piping is PVC you dont do any of this



if not, i dont know what you are referring to....
