An electrician came out yesterday and measured 1 volt between the metal plate and drain when only the lights were on. When the heater or a/c are running, it jumps to 10 volts. When you start the whirlpool tub, it jumps to 20 volts. After checking some of the connections in the house, he stated that it was a utility problem.
I called the utility company this morning and they came out and ran a temporary line to my meter. They also left a note saying that there was a bad neutral and that the permanent line would be run underground sometime soon.
My question.....how can I check to see the voltage between the metal plate and the drain without actually getting shocked again?? I believe it is truely fixed, but I would rather not find out first-hand if it wasn't.
