comment Using Water Supply Pipe to Connect the Earth Wire
I'd say no: especially in case of plastic pipes, let alone occurrence of air-bubbles etc, there's no way to be sure you'd get a 'connection'. I'd not rely on fluid for a grounding. The reason these pipes were used was because of the material of the pipes themselves as far as I know, not especially because there was water inside.

comment How can I remove the wires from this lamp holder?
Check thanks! I feel your information should be molded into an answer. If you feel up to it I'll accept it, if not I'll add the tips to my own answer for easy reading.

comment How can I remove the wires from this lamp holder?
Not a real option, as the wire is very visible, and is to be replaced by a longer, but still a pretty one (no simple plastic unit, has some thread mesh thingy around it, etc).

comment How can I remove the wires from this lamp holder?
You're right, I used "iron" as wrong word for "anything looking slightly like that", but I get what you mean :). The cord will not be flexed I think, because it is fixed a bit higher up, but never say never :). Is it easy to get something for myself to apply those sleeves? I can solder a bit, that would be no problem, but if I'm going to be changing it anyway, I might as well try to get it sleeved like it was?

I think I see what you mean, there was some sort of extra iron part on the default wire (crimp on sleeve?). I believe the current fix is save, but for completeness of this question: is there a way to adapt normal wire to something that fits in here?

comment How to replace wire next to another wire?
I got it to work in the end, described what I did for posterity, but seeing I broke wires and all, I think this might be the better answer, so accepted this :)
