Grounding circuit


Recommended Posts

As Mixos has said, you would only use earth ground or case ground when the circuit requires it. Some circuits depend upon a floating voltage and will not work when the common of the circuit is tied to earth ground. If you would like to post a particular circuit or link, everyone could comment further.

I heard that grounding the wire to your faucet is good idea for grounding.

There is a catch to this, though...years ago all houses had metal pipes all connected together and going into the ground. Many newer homes in some places have plastic water pipes between the faucet and the main pipes. I have seen some with metal braiding on the flexible pipe, but the nut is plastic. Obviously, these will not connect you to the ground. If in doubt, there is nothing that beats a good old rod in the ground to be sure.
