    Re: Whole House Surge Protector

    Exactly. Every structure must have single point ground so that every incoming wire is connected. Whereas homes may only have a few ground rods. Or homes constructed by an informed builder have...

    Your picture completely agrees with everything I had posted. Most everyone will never see a 100Kv lightning strike in their lifetime. But let's use those numbers anyway. A direct lighting strike...

    Re: Whole House Surge Protector

    Which is exactly what I have been posting. No protector is protection. The effective protector connects each hot wire short to single point earth ground. No earth ground means no effective...

    Re: Whole House Surge Protector

    No wonder you foolishly posted the myth about surges entering via the ground. You still don't understand 'single point earth ground' when it is explained so many times.
