Just got the new meter and filters in today, checked around a few rooms, the new circuits have ground, the old do not. The ground setup is a #4 copper from the panel to the water line then two 8 foot rods in the ground as required by local code.

Under review

Hmm, I don't see why grounded vs. ungrounded should make a difference in the Stetzerizer readings. I'm guessing it is something else (like devices on the branch circuits, or perhaps which phase(s) - legs - the branch circuits are attached to). Do you notice that many areas in your home are lower - around that 150-300 range - and then many other areas are up in that high range? This could be explained by the 2 hot "phases" or "legs" that come in to the house - A and B - they can be quite different in readings.

Most are in the low range but I found 3 high readings on the other side of the house, two 950's and a 1450 all close to each other between two rooms and a hallway. I suspect it maybe two hots in the same junction box and or a soldered mess of hots and neutrals. I've saw both situations before in this house. I'll have to check it out when I have time.

Oh, in one place the meter was doing something weird, when i plug it in it flashes 666 then a 1 on the far left then gives a reading, what does that mean?
