    Got to earth a cast iron pipe, can't seem to find very long earth clamps. Will need to be 13 inches plus for a 4 inch pipe...
    Tried my local suppliers longest is 10inches. I maight use this job for the 'inspector' so don't want to join two together!

    Hi 14th, I would have thought that as long as the two joined clamps were proved to be secure and readings showed compliance then all would be ok.

    Love, I assume you mean the tenby green boy!
    But remember, the clamp does need to comply to 951, as long as mechanically sound, and the stupid 951 label attached to it!:)

    Are you aware, Sparkler dear, of any earth clamp that doesn't comply with the relevant standard?

    As far as I'm concerned, a soundly-made and reliable connection is quite adequate.
