I am wiring an old twin, where the water meter is next door. Where do you run the ground, 5' from where it enters the twin that I'm doing and then go next door and jump the meter? Or run the ground next door and jump the meter there?

IMO you would have to access it next door where it actually enters the structure.

I say you go to the meter. If they dont like it have them bring the meter to you.

It sounds as if he went to the meter it would be the same place????

Anyway, I'm with Roger on it....

I did mean the same thing as. "you would have to access it next door where it actually enters the structure." or to have the water access the structure in your side. It is probably easyier to go to the meter then the water to be dug in to that half of the duplex. but i would prefer to have my meter in my half then next door,
The same for my panel.

If this is a duplex with two owners, then as the owner of the other unit, I am not going to permit you to come onto my side to make this connection.

Don, the connection would not have to be made inside.

Then in that case it doesn't need to be within 5 foot of anything.
