Hey guys, I Checked my wires and realized the ground wire  from the ont isn't connected to a ground source. It's only connected to ground block and then the ground block is connected to a ground source. Is that ok or does the ont ground wire have to connect to a ground source directly. Thanks guys I really appreciate your help. I will give out something special for any help ;).

If ont is connected to ground block a d ground block is grounded, then not is grounded.

Doesn't require a home run to ground source.

No different than every outlet in your house.

They are tied together and then wire to electrical panel.

Panel is then connected to ground.
