I am sitting here at work reading the posts and just thought of something.

Does anyone have any information on whether the "sharkbite" type connectors used in some plumbing still provide a continuous connection for grounding purposes?

I am just curious and I understand that The Code now requires grounding to be within 5 feet of the entrance of the pipe to prevent problems such as this but more so with PEX and CPVC plumbing in use today.

Just food for thought.

Thanks,
Rick

To be technically speaking, you are 'BONDING' the metal pipe, not grounding it.

Thanks for the replies.

I thought there would be some continuity but it is nice to hear it from the horses mouth.

Thanks,
