Hi
My house 1947 has a 3wire overhead 200 amp main as far as ground is concerned should there be a visable ground wire to a rod in the ground and to a gas or water main visable because i dont see one and just want to know if i should call a electrician for safety . i do see a ground wire in my main panel though.
Thanks

There should be a wire from the panel to the waterline in the house, also a bonding jumper on hot water heater, as well as a wire going to at least 1 ground rod. Depending on when service was upgradewd will dictate if 1 or 2 ground rods were required.
