I know that it's said that you need an entirely seperate ground rod
when opperating tesla coils because the high voltage grounding through
the house wiring is extremely dangerous to anything plugged into any
other grounded outlet on the same circuit. But what if you attached
the coils ground wire directly to the ground rod. It would be
bypassing the house wiring, so the high voltage won't be running by
any precious electronics inside the house. It shouldn't be running
back up into the house right?
I'm trying to be minimalistic so I don't have to try to pound down a
ground rod of my own.
