    Hi have a CU change existing Ze 180ohms not acceptable for CU change. Cant find rod could be under concrete floor so cant guarantee condition etc
    So adding another rod & 6mm to MET, so do i class Ze of new rod etc as Ze or am i allowed to use both? baring in mind i can guarantee condition of the first rod & cable as it disapears in conduit in concrete floor?

    I'd go for a new rod (10mm conductor personally) & record that as the Ze as you say you cant verify the old one.

    Thats what i was thinking as seems a waste to cut cable.
    But thanks a problem shared is a problem halved!
