can you tie ground wire neutral wire

To ensure proper connection to most homes, your plug should be a three-pronged model. The ground wire, usually green or bare copper in color, screws to the green terminal at the top of the outlet. Conversely, the black ‘hot’ wire attaches to the brass terminal, while the white ‘neutral’ or ‘return’ wire secures to the silver screw on the top.

In order to upgrade an existing two-pronged outlet to a three-pronged variety, the ground wire must be linked with either a metal box or a grounding rod that has been installed in the ground.

When your outlet has only two slots but the plug has three prongs, don’t worry! You can purchase an adapter that easily fits over the outlet and securely holds in the three-pronged plug. Although the ground wire doesn’t find a connection, fear not – your appliance will still function perfectly.

When faced with a dilemma of having a 3-pronged plug but no ground wire in the outlet, one may opt to obtain a GFCI outlet. These outlets are engineered with a special ground wire included, enabling them to be made compliant with certain areas where legislation requires them. In other words, the GFCI outlet is an ideal solution for any situation that calls for having a 3-pronged presentation within a socket without the presence of a ground wire.

In conclusion, is it feasible to connect the earth wire and neutral wire? The reply is in affirmative, though it’s not advisable to resort to such a practice unless one is operating a GFCI outlet.
