If one takes a pipe and hammers it into the ground and connects a wire to it 
and uses that as a negative and then connects a wire to the hot wire on an ac 
outlet it still reads about 110 volts but at a much lesser amperage. My 
question is would using the ground from a pipe in the yard, does that bypass 
the house meter and the hall effect. Would using power this way not register on 
the house meter?
