What is earth bonding

How does earth bonding effect me ?

We all heard  of earthing in our house to protect us. But what is earthing and how does it help ?

Imagine water escaping from a river how to we deal with it safely?

We put in pipes to run the water safely away to ground.

The earth does the same with electricity.

This is why it is so important to make sure earths are in place and extra earths on the gas and water are in place. The diagram shows why earthing is important and what is earth bonding. 

As Electricians we have to make sure your earth from the fuse board to the incoming gas supply and the incoming water supply are fitted.
