Ran across something interesting today. Thought I might get some thoughts on it. I did a duplex. Both units had 3 prong outlets that indicated normal wiring when checked with the SureTest. When I pull the covers off the Main panels, lo and behold there is not a ground wire in sight. Both units also had grounding conductors to ground rods one of them was not connected at all to the clamp. Have any of you ever run across this and can you hazard a guess as to how in the hell I got good ground indications when there were none in the panel. BTW, some knucklehead connected the ground wires on the water heaters but then snipped them off inside the panels.
Hmm. just thinking it might be “false grounds” but the SureTest should have picked that up.
