    earth leakage trip due to lightning

    Hi guys, i got an oldish house with old earth leakage that trips when lightning is in the area. Can it be anything else besides replacing the earth leakage?

    You could try ramp testing it to see if it's still working accurately but if it's very old I'd probably just replace it.
