    how would you go about earthing capping/conduit,?

    would it be from the earthing terminal of the back box at the end of the run, or would there be a separate circuit of earthing wire from the consumer units earthing terminal?

    also, what size cable would you use?

    what would be the best way to connect the cable to the conduit?

    Please tell us why you would want to earth capping?
    Conduit would normally be earthed via the metal box it's connected to.

    As senaca says, conduit would & must be earthed in the normal method at source. Metal capping is left unearthed.

    Metal capping is not considered mechanical protection, earthed or not.
