Posted By Topic: eathing reo in slab of new house

Apr 28 2015 18:36

is it compulsory to earth reinforcing in a slab of new house. I normally do but this time the guys pouring the foundations bent the exposed reo over into the slab to get it out the way.
cheers guys.

if I d any suggestions, cheers

Well it\'s in the bible -

Maybe you can find a position where the reinforcing can be exposed again so you can connect to it. Under the shower tray for example. Then mortar to cover it again.

or tell the builder and the owner that you cant get the house connected until it\'s done, and make it his problem to give you a connection point.

do i have to run the earth back to the men board or will an internal distribution earth suffice?
