FIRST A WORD OF CAUTION: I DO NOT RECOMMEND ANYONE TO BE OPENING UP SWITCH PLATES, OUTLETS, POWER PANELS ETC, WHERE EXPOSED WIRES ARE PRESENT. FOR YOUR SAFETY CONTACT A QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL ELECTRICIAN FOR SUCH WORK.
PROVIDED YOU CAN ACCESS THE CABLES LEAVING THE POWER PANEL WITH NO EXPOSED WIRES YOU CAN DO YOUR OWN “NET CURRENT” TEST, WHICH YOU WILL FIND VERY HELPFUL.
What is “Net Current”? Well I have been surveying businesses and homes for a little over 2 years now and I find almost 50% of all buildings are badly wired by an electrician or an amateur that is really not adequately trained. So if all the lights turn on and all the outlets work OK why do I need to be worried?
How do I do a net current test? It is easy, all you need is an affordable Amp probe (less than $100.00) and you must have all your internal and external lights on, all your TV’s and 120 volt appliances on such as dishwasher, washer, refrigerators, and something powered on and plugged into at least one power outlet in every room of the building. Now you can simply clamp the Amp probe on every cable leaving the power panel to the circuits in your building, if you get a reading of more than 0.000 amps on the Amp probe meter you have found “Net Current’. If you find it, call a qualified electrician and get it fixed right away.
I have discovered that while we have possibly all had “Net Current’ issues before “Smart Meters” came on the scene, once the Smart Meter goes on the home all types of health effects come into view and some people ‘s health is dramatically affected. This is even after they have opted out of a RF radiating Smart Meter, they are still sick.
What I have found is people in homes and businesses suffer from issues with maintaining their balance walking, tingling in their legs and feet, headaches and trouble sleeping. Once the “Net Current” issues are re-mediated many symptoms go away.
What causes “Net Current” and what is it? Well what it means is that the black wire (Power) is not the same electrical length as the returning Neutral wire in your switch plates and outlets or junction boxes behind the wall. What you will commonly find is that an electrician or homeowner joined all the neutral wires together into a single wire nut which will increase the electrical length of the neutral wire and the result will be a “Net Current” on the wires, creating magnetic fields that pulse with every 60 Hz cycle.
Here are pictures of what I commonly find. It is a real mess and does not meet NEC code.
How do you know if you have this problem? Well you must be able to place a amp probe meter around each power cable. Use must use an Amp probe with 3 digits of resolution for example 0.000 reading capability. Many electricians have a large amp probe with only 0.0 resolution, this will not help you find all “Net Current” issues. Fixing “Net Current” will make a huge difference in your health.
Here are some photos of a cable with”Net Current” and one with no net current.
I use the following Amp probe in my testing, it has a smaller diameter opening ideal for checking Romex cables and individual wires.
You can buy it here:
Why is this making us sick, well the Smart Meter does not have adequate filtering to prevent returning current and transients from “Back Feeding’ on to the power wires as the result of the switching power supply to power all the DC circuits in the meter. One thing is that there is now a non-Symmetrical current flow to back feeding on your power wires as a result with a current waveform that is not like the symmetrical wave form of a standard 60 Cycle form. Symmetrical means the current flow matches the 60 cycle voltage waveform. Non-Symmetrical means the current no longer follows the 60 cycle wave form or a harmonic of this. It has an irregular shape on a scope trace and gets amplified when when there is an imbalance on the power wires.
Here is a video from Karl Riley who has his famous book called Tracing EMF’s.
Here is his video, this is excellent to watch.
For checking magnetic fields I like to use this meter from Safe Living Technologies
I cannot tell you about the huge difference it makes in a home when “Net Current” gets fixed.
