i am aware u dont need 25 m tails in my book its good practice to fit 25 not 16 but its your job not mine
back to the point i take it the reading is the ze
have you checked that its not snaged on the insulation and conections are tight also that your clip on the tester is not losse or knackerd if this is all ok then you may need to call the power supplier to call out to check there systhem
what systhem of eath is it
