Perfect.I was planning on running a ground from the gas line to the panel. The furnace is old and has old 2 wire power.
This is happening faster than the code can keep up. If inspected, every authority will have different opinions. In my opinion, no. When you have a pex system, the short stubs to the fixtures don't need to be grounded. I would consider the WH stubs the same.There will be a couple short sections of rigid copper where the flexible water lines connect to the water heater. Each of these transitions to PEX. Do these need to be grounded?
We are doing a lot of remodels lately where the plumbers (freaking plumbers ) come in and chop out a chunk of copper in the middle of the system. This leaves a bunch of the remaining copper unbonded.
I take it on a case by case basis. If 90% of the copper is gone, I wouldn't necessarily bond the remaining pieces.
The piping outside your house does not require bonding.Should I run a ground wire between the old water pipe where it enters the building and my panel.
