How Do I Know If I Need A Grounding Rod For My Earthing Device?

Most modern homes in the U.S. have a functional electrical ground system that interfaces with the Earthing plug in device. If your home was built before the 1960s and has not been electrically re-wired, you may require a ground rod or professional installation of a dedicated grounding connection to the Earth. If you are unsure, have an electrician check your home for the presence of a functional ground system or use a commercially available outlet checker. Homes outside of the U.S. may require a Grounding Rod if there is no grounding plug available on the outlet.
