Please explain - what exactly is a “false” ground?
This house was originally wired ungrounded (a two wire system), and most of the three prong receptacles tested to have no ground.
I got this reading from one in a kitchen. I plugged in the other tester to see what indication I would get.
Now I see what Jerry has been telling me for so long - these three light testers can give a false reading.
