After completing the Multicomp Pro Non-Contact Voltage Tester - Review, I asked myself "Why don't I use this type of tool more?" Then I started thinking of some of the events that distracted me along the way. This blog just might be my version of the bloopers reel.
Does a good ground really matter?
I know it does, but how much? I call this the Flamingo Testing Method. Stand on the sneaker. Measure. Stand on the bare foot. Measure. Hope Amazon finally delivers the grounding strap today. Repeat.
This was a preliminary test. The ones used in the roadtest didn't involve this method.

I'm not tough enough to hold onto an energized conductor. I still haven't sorted this out. There is no measured voltage on the ground wire (millivolts that do not fluctuate). Fluctuating millivolts would indicate an open. I tested the grounding (Earthing) circuit and it is in tact. 6" steel water line. No measurable drop in the bonding circuit.
