Incoming Services

It is a requirement of the electrical regulations that incoming services such as water, gas and oil pipes are bonded to an electrical earth.  This is to ensure safety if a fault makes an electrical contact to the metal piping. Bonding is also required for any metal structure which is exposed and can be touched.


Pipe without bonding



Many houses and non-domestic electrical systems do not yet have this safety feature.


 


Earth Bonding in place



 

 

It is a requirement that this earth-bonding must be installed or verified as present before any repair or renovation can be signed-off and a certificate issued.
