If those HV lines are putting out enough EMF to electrify the plumbing in that house, wouldn't at the same time, the wiring in the house pick up this same EMF and play all kinds of havoc with induced voltage? Something here smells of open/corroded/loose poco neutral, & unbalanced current using the plumbing trying to get back to the poco transformer... I'll bet on the difference in potential between the fresh water and the drainline in the shower are why he's getting bit
Waiting on ECN subversive "Iwire"'s report

"fluourescent bulbs inside the home light up even when they are not plugged in."
Well there is an indication your too close, the news story said he was 30ft, i can light a bulb at 50ft from the ones near us, well not unusual to build close to lines, the property is always cheap, so a bargin is a bargin, but to complain about the power lines being there, is like building at the end of a runway and then being supprised planes fly over your home.

It's saturday, bob is out moonlighting, but once he finishes his side work. it would be nice if he could get some pic's of him standing near the power lines with a lit lamp!
This just hit the latest news release'
But National Grid shot back yesterday that Zagami, who purchased his Lindsey Street property last year - long after the electric towers were constructed - built his house on its easement and even ran underground water pipes through the easement without first consulting the company.
