It was common many many years ago to provide the earth via the
water pipe. Not so today. Get your leccy board in to sort it out.

It's nothing to do with the leccy board.

How would you define leccy board? The same as your electricity
supplier?

If I meant that I'd have said so. ;-)


What's happened to you lately?


I could ask the same of you. ;-)

But if you contact your electricity supplier and tell them the problem I'm
sure they'll point you in the right direction.

I very much doubt that your electricity supplier would guide you on a
technical matter such as 'earthing'.

It would be more productive to contact the DNO for his area and enquire
if PME is available on their network. If avaialable the DNO are obliged
to provide PME to the terminal cutout. There may be a standard charge
for doing this.
