    Hi Everyone , a bit confused here .
    New Regs . state that an incoming Water or Gas main pipe need not be earth bonded if part of the incoming in in plastic ..

    Does this also mean that Cross bonding of pipes in the house do not need to be Cross Bonded ? what would be the point of cross bonding if the pipes were not bonded at source ..

    Re the Incoming pipe .. Surely it would not do any harm to ' Bond it Anyway '

    Re the Cable clips .. Plastic is no longer allowed !
    Where does one get the New style metal ones now ?
    My Suppliers have not even heard of them !!

    Look forward to you Replies

    Just make sure they puncture the sheathing, and make contact with the cpc. Jobs a good en. Hmmm, will have to check continuity for each clip, drat.

    I'm not sure you fully understand the purpose of bonding. It's got nothing to do with earthing. There has never been a requirement for cross bonding.
