An ungrounded..ground

“Paper does not a professional make”

hence my " " :wink:

I see this kind of stuff all the time.

Local cable TV company hires “sub-contractors” to do their installs.

These dweebs are told to install a ground for the cable wire.

They are told to just connect it to a cold water pipe.

The good ones drill into the basement to find the pipe.

I would guess that the “Dr. Suess explains how to hook up cable” book did not specifically explain that the water pipe must be metal. :wink:

I know that it is low voltage and not part of the SOP, but try explaining this when the cable takes a lightning hit.

Hope this helps;
