    While ripping the old bathroom fittings out I noticed that none of the pipework or fittings were earthed. Should they be earthed and if so what is the preferred method?

    Is there RCD protection?

    Bonding of metalwork such as pipes is usually done near the point where they enter the building or close to the meter.

    Then as a general rule supplementary bonding may be omitted but some parts may need to be tested to see if extraneous or not.

    Has the pipework been tested to see if it is extraneous?

    The house was checked by an electrian before we purchased it and got a clean bill of health
