Herein lies your problem, you know nothing about electricity and this shows through your comments about a ground making a GFCI safer.
The sad part is you are steadfast and will not even consider the statements of others. It would be my suggestion to you to defer all electrical to an electrician as you do not display the knowledge to be performing electrical inspections.
Just for your information, it was Paul that invited me to this site to share my wisdom and it was Nick that put this title under my name (InterNACHI Member).
Paul is a close and personal friend and I was the Chief Moderator on his GURU web site before he took the position with NEMA and had to close his site. We have spent endless hours on the phone as well as the emails we have shared over the years. Paul is well aware of my credentials as well as my activity within the state of NC with both the Office of the State Fire Marshall and the Electrical Licensing Board. He also knows of my devotion to the IAEI and the paper from NC State than hangs on my wall.
I can assure you that my devotion to the help of the Home Inspector Members of this site is no less than that of Mr. Gromicko or Mr. Abernathy. I would never give misleading information out on purpose and will always strive to give the best and most detailed information available to me even if some here disagree with what I post.
Now you can shun me off as a stupid electrician that knows nothing if you want but I am not only an electrician but hold the highest license that NC offers. I also hold the highest level Electrical Inspection Certificate the state offers. I am a certified electrical instructor for the Department of Insurance and the NC Electrical Licensing Board. I am an electrical instructor for the NC Chapter of the IAEI. These certified positions are not easy to come by and certain criteria must be met in order to hold a certified position.
For more than 12 years I have been teaching electrical classes at Randolph Community College. These classes include a class on electrical theory and a class that you are in dire need of so you better understand what you are doing. I also teach electrical safety as outlined in NFPA 70E and OSHA along with the Department of Labor in the state of NC.
You can rest assured my friend that my knowledge of electrical theory, safety, and the codes that revolve around the installation of electrical systems in not just that of an electrician’s opinion but of years of research and study. Years of listening to those with far more knowledge than what I have. Unlike some that I know, I listen and I learn.
