Electric Panel Box Ground Wire Mistake

CLARK 105CROSSWIND COURT ALEDO.pdf (SECURED) - Adobe Acrobat Pro This electric panel box ground was wrapped around the copper cold water line.  What is wrong with this?  An electrical ground must be attached to a cold water line with an approved clamp.  The clamp will securely attach the ground and make sure the attachment is secure, without it the panel may only have intermittent grounding.  If the panel is not grounded then the home electrical system will not operate properly.  This is an easy fix and you must wonder why it wasn’t just done right to begin with.  Homes are built by humans, lived in by humans and repaired by humans so there is room for error. This is why it is so very important for you to hire a home inspector prior to buying real estate, they go places and view systems that you may never see.
