A job requires some work and when checking the bonding there was non to water or even gas, the gas meter is accessible but the water is at the rear of the property and so is boiler. The property is terraced so cannot go down the side of the house and the getting under the floor is a no go!
What is your opinion on this? Bond the gas and then note water is not accessible but bond across gas and water at boiler?

Cheers

Sounds tricky to get to but afraid you will have to, as above up and over or surface run.

You cannot use the gas pipe as a bonding conductor which is what you would effectivly be doing in your OP

Well the gas will be bonded at the meter but I'm talking about getting one onto the water? As I cannot get into the attic as the board is at the front door!! Grrr I can't see a solution?

Surface trunking then, sounds like the only option. Hers is a ESC leaflet you can give to the customer to explain why it needs doing then let them decide how they want you to do it.

There are many ways to achieve this, as the two posters above have suggested two ways.

Some ways unfortunately look a 'bit rough', but you can only do what the client will allow you to do.

In one case, mid terraced house, laminate floors up and down (stone floor downstairs too), so cannot go outside and around, you could either go outside up and over through the loft,and then back outside and down and back in, or (my customer did not want this either), I had to run surface and through internal walls.
This looked awful, but it was the only option left.

Returning to the property today, i took a continuity reading at water which measured 1.0 ohm and no visual sign of bonding on the water. The options of going outside is a no go, downstairs is looking impossible due to laminate flooring etc. I will look at possibly going through the house only problem is kitchen is about bathroom which has just been tiled!! AHHAHHHHHHHH
So i guess, i dont know.................

What's the problem with going up the front, outside, to attic and back down the other side as suggested?
