I believe the subject was Grounds.........
Don't all residental homes have to be grounded ?
This picture of this 1949 home had grounded bathroom and garage
only and it had 100amp at the service panel but it did not have a
#8 gauge ground wire to to a buss at the panel .
My understanding is that before 1960 , it only had to be
grounded to the panel to rod or
water pipe. It was after that year they started running grounds from
outles to panel buss bar.Just wondering because of the age of the house
if this would be called out . Does this make sense? Talk to ya all
Monday I am taking a little vacation to see some friends in Modesto,Ca
which is really strange because one of them lives down the street from
the infamous Scott Peterson home.
