Before the days where you could not smoke on site, I remember drilling through a floor and right into a gas pipe with a lit cigerette in my mouth.

My apprentice ran for cover, I just took another drag on my fag and shouted for the plumber.

id have a guess that it was TNS, but due to a high earth reading, they have made it TNCS. the link to see between neutral & sheath may possibly be the main earth to the sheath, or just to link the neutral to earth

ze 0.14 its got a pme sticker on it, does that make it tncs

its made TNCS by the big lump of copper between neutral and earth!

has danny 7299 used this as a earth rod then?

Hell NO!!!

I put a couple of Rods in... but i did trow a 10mm onto it any way! just because it was below the C/U.

as sparks2911 says above, it would still need earthing anyway

I may be way off here, but is that pipe not a capped off gas pipe?

Often seen when gas meter and gas main has been replaced, often with the new gas meter being placed in a box outside the property.

Just asking. :)

if he has, it wont comply with 7671! (or... if its been cut in the street so its not part of the gas network, then im guessing it would be an acceptable rod?)

he said he put another rod in aswell so that should cover it

Just avoid the gas pipe underground!

:D
