In my house we get a low voltage shock when you touch metal with wet hands. We had a electrician in who told us it was a problem outside our house. He said it had to do with the transformer that fed power to our house. We called our electric company who told us that we need to do some thing inside the house. We did the back and forth a few times with the problem not solved. So we stopped. When the electrician was at our house he turned off the main that supplies power the house and went around the house with a voltage meter. He found and recorded voltage still coming though in the metal. This tells me that it is a grounding problem. Any ideas?
Thanks for all the info. I found notes that my husband had when he was doing the back and forth with the electrician and power company. This is what the electrician told us, 'the transformer ( on the pole outside of the house ) needed to be checked because voltage was coming through the ground'. The power company told us ' the lighting rods attached to the neutral needed to be moved'. That did NOTHING. What I would really like to know is this true? I am tired of the very high electric bills and this NEEDS to be fixed.
