If you live in a un-renovated property, the chances are the house hasn’t been rewired since the 1950’s. I have come across jobs where the original wiring was from the 1930’s. if this is the case, I imagine you would be having constant issues of things not working. I can gaurentee you are living with a dozen dangerous situations due to the age of the electrical installation, It is time to re wire the house and bring the electrical system up-to current Australian Standards.

Earthing your electrical system
The backbone of all electrical systems Is the “Earth”. This is a major part of the safety system.
Safety Switches (RCD's) need a good earthing system in place to operate correctly. Appliances need to be connected to a good earthing system, so in the event of an earth fault, there is a path for dangerous currents to return to earth.
Rules and regulations have changed over the years, if you have a house that was built before 1980 your earth system may not be up to code, and a potentially dangerous situation, could be simmering away.
The main parts of an earthing system include:
Main Earth Bar, Earth Wire, Earth Stake, Water pipe bond, equipotential bond. All are critical to ensure a safe system is in operation.
