I live in a 30 year old bungalow (UK)
I just received a quote from a plumber
and when discussing it, he mentioned that
there is an arbitrary electrical test to be
carried out on all bathroom plumbing?
Something to do with earthing?
Yes the regs now have all pipes to taps etc fitted with an earth strap and
earth cable, this is in case a faulty appliance shorts onto pipework EG: a
water heater, the resistance between your taps etc and the main earth at
the consumer unit has to be checked, all should be earth bonded together.
