The Third Rod

Grounding is important to your electromagnetic health and safety.

Well, we were not grounded by Christmas, but we had three new grounding rods for the New Year. You could feel the pressure drop. And the buzzing and ringing in our ears is much abated. Most blessedly is the improvement in our blocking of intrusive, noxious pulse-modulated radiation that pulsed our tinnitus. Even sufficiently attenuated to prevent it damaging our DNA (we hope), knowing what it does to those who are being exposed to the full power of this DNA damaging multiphoton technology, sold by the safety of a single photon, is hard to sit still for. Nothing like the sound of the destruction of life and property, to keep a person awake at night.

It has been a month since the rods were installed. We are definitely recommending people have the electrical resistance of their grounding systems checked and improved as necessary for their safety and electromagnetic health. However, we still cannot say this will immediately rid the residence of ghost and stray voltage. It is believed they are slowly improving but there are too many other variations for us to say for sure. We are speculating this is a matter of the NEV that can be amplified by conductivity variations in the concrete and building materials. But as a start, the grounding system must be in good order and have the capacity to manage the loads. Even if this does not immediately fix everything, not having it, will make things worse. Heed our warning and prepare now for what the future may hold.

The first two grounding rods that were put in got quickly loaded up with the inventory of electricity and energy in the walls, roof and slab of our home so we went for a third. There are numerous articles available suggesting this is the thing to have to protect sensitive electronic equipment. I would suggest that we are our most sensitive bio-electronic equipment, yet the limits for our voltage exposure seems quite high. https://strayvoltage.epri.com/general/documents/NARUC_SV_Panel_Session_July_2009.pdf (See Page 22). Another reference suggest amperage may be more of a problem https://www.tuv.com/content-media-files/usa/pdfs/1020-field-evaluation-service-(fes)-for-u.s.-and-canada/tuv_rheinland_02_effects_of_electrical_current_in_human_body.pdf

We have also learned much about stray and ghost electricity and cows. It seems that stray and ghost voltage is not considered a problem for humans, but cows that stop producing milk are studied and concern is shown for their excessive blinking, twitching and refusals to eat, drink, produce or reproduce. https://www.ecofarmingdaily.com/raise-healthy-livestock/cattle/detecting-and-understanding-stray-voltage/

First know that Stray Voltage has become the term used to cover a number of problems that you can find out about from Wikipedia . The more formal definition for Stray Voltage is stated in wiki. “Neutral to earth voltage (NEV) specifically refers to a difference in potential between a locally grounded object and the grounded return conductor, or neutral, of an electrical system.”

We will use the term more generally to include those annoying leaks through the insulation of our wires and other electron flows though our home and use the term NEV for that specific type of stray voltage. NEV limits how well you can earth your home. Years ago we read that the difference between your home and the earth should be 10 millivolts (mV) and no more that 50 mV. We can no longer find such references on the internet.

We have put in our call to FPL and ask them about this. The owners of the cows got themselves a neutral isolator https://ronkelectrical.com/categories/blocker-stray-voltage-isolator when they had problems with the NEV so the girls could get back to work. Yes, it is commonly used to relieve livestock that does not take well to being electrified. We will see if a human can rate one.

Here is how one utility in farm country handles stray electricity for our four legged friends https://www.alliantenergy.com/communitysupportandsafety/safety/safetyonthefarm/strayvoltage

We will continue to search our home for electrical problems. Our little Florida home is of cinder-block construction on a concrete slab. Concrete is amazing stuff. They are currently developing “smart” concrete for storing energy so you can live truly electrified. But the everyday stuff has some interesting properties of it’s own.

It seems that conventional dry concrete can store electricity like a capacitor. Moisture has a major effect on it’s conductivity. Furthermore, concrete can wick moisture, so moisture can actually move through it. Maybe this is how those odd voltages are occurring. The question is, how do we use this to get the excess energy out of our slab so we can walk barefoot in our home without getting foot cramps?

We have tried cleaning the carpets, setting a sprinkler on the walls of our house and now have a soaker hose around our slab. Will there be an end to the outflow of current from our home or are we trying to drain the ocean?

The sprinklers on the walls of our cinder-block home ended with tripping the ground-fault interrupter and we would take this as not the thing to do as there are conduits and wiring that may be vulnerable. Raising the conductivity of the cinder block may not be the thing to do. The soaker hose around the slab worked much better, with maybe a quick wash down on the walls.

We have much more to say about stray and ghost voltages in our home, but will save that for another post. Stay wired and grounded, my friends.

And then there was the fourth rod. https://reject5g.info/2022/04/02/house-on-fire-the-fourth-rod/
