a recent home inspection with the seller present invited a small discussion regarding grounding electrodes. i noted that there was no grounding rod to the buyer and the seller interrupted saying, “Oh, you dont need one, its grounded to the water pipes.” now i know the water pipe cant be the sole electrode, but more times than not i dont see a rod on old (50+ yrs) homes. are you all recommending that an electrician come and install one?
