Do not disconnect the ground wire going to the plumbing water line. It could be carrying high voltage.
Rather than ever disconnecting it which would give the house real poltergiest activities including magic smoke from disappearing appliances put an amprobe on it to see if any current is flowing on it.

Had a similar problem. Power company replaced transformer, it did it again, had them come back out, it was a bad connection on their end.

Exactly what I did. I have 3.5 amps on the ground. Obviously a bad neutral. On hold with PECO right now.
