    C2 or C3, which do you think?
    Can't make my mind up.
    Any other thoughts?

    From MET, through wall to Electrode, not clipped to the wall, just dangling free.
    Electrode fully buried at the moment, under leaves and debris. Not cleared this away yet. Then....

    .. as you can see, the insulation has been damaged!
    So, higher chance the cable will deteriorate

    Maybe!
    It's a rented property, so this was just noticed and will be sent to the agent. They may then ask for an EICR to be completed.

    You need to see the final connection before making a final judgement. The insulation damage isn't too much of a concern, bare earthing conductors to electrodes used to be common place.

    I was going to say C3 improvment recomended (machanical protection) if the Ze was low and all other conditions were met eg RCD tails clamped etc.However you can not get in to test.

    sorry tails clamped as they enter consumer unit (if metal) rcd or rcbo protection to overcome high Ze to meet disconnection times.
