GROUNDING
INFORMATION:
The house cold water
pipe is often used to ground
electri-
cal outlets
in the home.
Grounding
protects
you from
electrical
shock.
Installing
the water
filter housing may
have broken
this ground.
To restore, buy and install
a #4
copper
wire across the filter, tightly
clamped
at both
ends, as shown in Figure 10.
