how do i test earth bonding?


Postby chris_on_tour2002 » Mon Apr 28, 2008 12:49 pm

can anybody tell me the procedure for continuity testing the earth bonding of my copper pipework?

just done some plumbing work in the bathroom - i know for a fact that the pipes are cross bonded throughout the house as i've recently fitted a new combi and put in all new central heating, pipes and all, throughout and fitted the clamps myself.

however i used an existing earth lead (6mm earth cable) from the original system to take it to earth. how do i test if this is sound and that it does actually go to earth somewhere?

i have a multimeter, just don't know quite how to use it for this particular type of test.
