Subject: Current through ground

Name: KShaw

Question: I used a circuit tester to test the ground and neutral together. The light on the tester lit up, but barely. Since it wasn't lighting up brightly, like when testing the hot wire, should I be concerned?Thanks

Answer: Hi KShaw,There is no reason to be concerned by this. It can happen for a whole host of reasons. To be honest it take most electricians years to understand how to read all the different types of testers. I can only guess what kind of of tester you are using and what you are using this reading for. In general that is a normal reading.
