New circuits. Ra of 229 Ohms therefore the rcds are for fault protection by design. Zdb of 0.29 (10mm gas bond) so are the rcds classed as additional protection?

Hi - my take is - Reg 542.2.6 says gas pipes can’t be used as an earth electrode. So the design should be based on the TT earth rod result.

The "advisory" range for TT RA is up to 200 ......... could you add a 2nd rod? (or water the ground?;))

Put water with it...reminds me of a long time ago a team were putting in a gigantic earth rod. We used to put loads of salt and coke in the earth and then water it. We dug out the earth before hand and mixed it. One of the guys toward the end jumped on the "conditioned" patch and disappeared into the ground. At the time it was hilarious.

The problem with that is the electricity won't read the book before deciding where to go.
With the values stated the gas pipework will carry the major part of any fault current to earth.

Agreed.
Paperwork exercise I suppose, just in case gas gets converted to yellow plastic :)

The RCD's will be for both fault and additional protection.
