Hoping this is the correct exchange. At the moment I'm currently renting my house in Canada (120V), and it seems the landlord has attempted to try pull a fast one. From what I understand, or possibly before the previous tenant, there were only two prong outlets installed in the house. The landlord decided to install three prong outlets with of course not having a ground connected.
This is obviously terrible for pretty much everything in my house, but unfortunately the rental board won't do anything about it and I can't afford to do anything myself for the entire house, so instead I'd like to attempt to ground a single outlet or atleast myself (then possibly move on to the rest of the house slowly).
I'm putting together a recording studio in the basement, only to find I get zapped by my instruments and can hear popping and the "sound" of electrical current on my tracks. Would anyone happen to have a suggestion to help clear this up? I used to build computer for a living, so wiring I can get away with, but this I'm a bit stuck on. Any help is appreciated!
Just to make sure I'm not crazy, here's a few images of one of my outlets. Got hot and neutral, but no ground.
