BX Equipment Grounding


Recommended Posts

I'm doing some receptacle inspections for a company that has a program for homebound computer operators. They're hiring me to check receptacles for grounding and polarity. I know that BX around here is commonly grounded just by screwing the 3-slot receptacle into the metal wall box - and the SureTest reads "OK" with that. But I'm inclined to say that such are not optimally grounded, and that greater ground security can be made by connecting from the receptacle to the box with wire.

Agree? Or am I being too picky?
