Is It OK to have both?

Some people seem to say it can create a dangerous PD, but is that right? If you have earth bonding thats not that different to an earth rod, as the pipes go through the earth.

I think I read somewhere in the regs or somewhere that an earth rod can be considered as a backup in the case of a PEN fault, otherwise all earthing could become live and you could even get feedback from other properties!

Marc
