    Is there anyone that has any idea to help this member
    They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
    She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me

    Ground loop test is typically done with a clamp on ground tester, of course there are many stipulations on this test that has been discussed dozens of times in detail here.

    Earth resistance is typically done with a 3 point fall of potential test and is much more reliable because the test proofs itself as being accurate, again discussed many times here in detail.

    this may help
    basically stated above
    earth resistance measures the coupling of your gnd system with earth reference
    ground loop similar but used for measuring effectiveness of equip bonds
    measures a loop between existing electrodes
