Hello: Did the electrician tell you that he found and fixed a problem? It sounds like the plumbing is being used as a ground, and possibly is inadvertently being used as a neutral too. 😯 The next step I’d take is to remove any ground wires from metal piping and re-route them to the ground bar in your main electrical panel. Also make sure a good ground rod is driven nearby, and connected to the main panel. Does that help with the “lost” feeling? 😎

Yours, Larry
