Had DirecTV via one of their local contractors install a system last week. Had Voom do an install yesterday and the Voom guy told me the new line DirecTV installers put in wasn't grounded. So the guy comes out today and grounds it to an outside faucet. Now I have read that you aren't supposed to do that, it doesn't meet The National Electric Code. I tell the installer that and he says it meets code, they do it all the time, and that they wouldn't let them do if it it wasn't. Of course I am going to call the local building inspectors office Monday and make sure, but anyone else have the same experience?
