For some reason, this doesn't work for me. I'm thinking it has something to do with my meter(which is a brand name and works fine in every other use), but with and even without a ground wire, on the hard or in the water, I get multiple amps when I do this. Yet no problems of any kind that indicate stray current or grounding problems and no problems being plugged into ground fault outlets.
