A friend may put his house on the market. He had a new CU fitted 8-10 years ago. Double RCDs. An earth cable goes from the incoming supply to the CU. The CU is under the stairs. I noticed that the gas outlet pipe is bonded to an adjacent water pipe that disappears under the floor in a cupboard opposite. That is it. Anyone have any comments on this.

So do any of the bonding cables on the pipe go back to the CU?

When you say looked did you islolate and remove the cover of the CU ?

Or are you saying there is simply a short link between the water and gas pipe ?

A quick check with a wander lead could at least tell you if it is well-bonded to the MET, even if it won't reveal the CCC of the bonding.

No need to test. Looking is enough. What I described was where the earth cables went to and from.
