    Charlie,

    Keep in that, like the other SharkBite fittings, and other flexible piping, I doubt that is electrically continuous.

    As such, that would need a bonding jumper across it from metal piping to metal piping to maintain the electrical bonding.

    after looking at photo again, i do see a copper rod on left side of photo--did not check for at inspection. but maybe it is there. may not get back to property--but it is vacant and close to me--so maybe go check out tomorrow. take a look
    thanks
