Hi chaps,

Just did a "mock" EICR on a friends place and found no bonding to incoming gas and water.

Am I allowed to use a single piece of 10mm to bond both of them back to the MET, or does it have to be 2 separate runs? Fairly sure 1 run is ok, but just wanted to be sure!

Sorry for the amateurish question!

one bonding conductor is adequate ......dont cut it at the first point (BS951 clamp)...just bare the sheath of....expose enough copper to wrap around the screw termination......then its on to the second clamp......keep it continious...then when old wetpants comes along and starts disconnecting pipework without a care in the world...you still have continuity to the furthest point on the string...
Happy days...

by the way as well....if you ever find a single bonding conductor being used for more than 1 service....and it isn`t continuous from the 1st point (as has been described above)...or alternatively it hasn`t been jointed with copper crimps (lugs) at the first point onwards.....then thats an instant (2)....

I have to disagree. BS 7671 does not state it has to be one continuous cable and only in the guidance notes does the continuous cable become a recommendation.

I agree that you disagree, this is good practice rather than a regulation-i'd be looking at a code 3 if anything.

I agree with you! lol

This is something that should be far clearer.

How anyone can give a C2 for non continuous bonding...........

well...shows you how wrong you can be..lol....
saying that though...i looked at a recent PIR that had a single bonding conductor down as a (1)....lol...
Well...(3) it is then...lol...

Busmans holiday Mark.

Still got the garage sockets to do.

And the brick lights.

And the power down to the shed.

And the socket in the end garage so the wife doesnt have to run an extension for the exercise bike.

And the outside lights (bought last year, cables there)
