250.64:Going_Commando said:Ground electrode conductors must be continuous or irreversibly spliced last I checked. Don't see how you could just the meter like that. I just use 1 piece of wire and hit pipe clamps on either side. Those books have typos and wrong **** in them all the time.
The GEC must be continuous, but not GEC jumpers.Check out 250.64(C). Grounding electrode conductor(s) shall be installed in one continuous length without a splice or joint except as permitted in 1-4. None of those exceptions include using the the pipe the way they did. The picture is a code violation.
Sorry, here is the picture from my book.
What book is that?Sorry, here is the picture from my book.

This exactly.There is only one grounding electrode conductor and that goes from the panel to the water pipe. The others are bonding jumpers not grounding electrode conductor's.
