I moved into a condominium and the problem is that I get electric shocks when I run the tap water either in the bathroom or especially when cooking small cuts on my fingers.

An electrician came and checked the water inlet pipe was well connected to the land and it is. He does not know where it comes and offers me to change my old electric panel fuse with a new switch and circuit breakers without being sure it solves my problem.

What do you think?
Thanks for your help

"offers me to change my old switchboard Fused "
Is the electrical installation of the building is connected to the earth? Plugs which are connected to the washing machine, fridge, oven, etc.. must include an earth. Make sure the ground wire from the connectors, is connected to the electrical panel, on a strip of land. Also make sure the wire these jacks, is not connected to a pipe.
Please specify

Does it have
thought to measure the earth?
enough observed that there is a green/yellow wire connected everywhere, we must also check the status of the land itself.

have you been tested to cut your main breaker and run water to see if the problem persists and that this is your electrical system that is

I correct my last sentence
"that this is your electrical system it is?"
who wants nothing
say "which will indicate whether your facility is involved "

thank you for your answers.
Yes catches are grounded in the bathrooms.
other hand, the electrician has used a device to "measure" the ground.

was checked and it is not apparent electrical wire on the pipe

I'll try to cut the power to verify if this is good my installation
