Product Overview

  • Exceptionally strong design with high-carbon steel core and tip
  • Tough copper coating won't crack or tear
  • Continuous electro-plating process ensures permanent bond
ERICO copper-bonded ground rods are the highest quality ground rods available today. We use a unique manufacturing process, which includes drawing the steel rod to size before the copper bonding process begins. This results in a straighter, harder steel core, making installation easier. ERICO uses a continuous electro-plating process over the steel core that results in a permanent molecular bond that provides decades of reliable performance. Our state-of-the-art ISO registered manufacturing facility provides a consistent, high-quality finished product that is used in millions of installations around the world.
  • 99.9% pure electrolytic copper coating
  • Molecular bond to nickel-sealed high strength steel core
  • Rods have a high carbon steel core and tip that provide superior strength when driving
  • Copper coating will not crack when bent or tear when driven
  • Minimum copper coating of 10 mils on rods listed to UL- 467
  • ERICO name, length, diameter and part number is roll-stamped within 12" (304,8 mm) of chamfered end
  • UL logo and control number where applicable stamped on each rod for easy inspection after installation

Questions & Answers

What is the minimum effective depth for a copper grounding rod? I can only pound it in to a depth of 3 feet.

Asked by: chris
I'd drive it in as far as possible. Here's a little trick and it works like a charm. Grab a shovel and dig a hole a foot or so. Whatever you feel you can do. After you have driven your hole ,fill it with water from a garden hose or a bucket. Let the water soak into the hole. Just wait it out, it won't take long. Then put your grounding rod in the hole and work it up and down making a hole for the rod in the hole you just dug. See where I'm going. Just keep doing this and you'll have the rod in the earth in no time. Just remove the rod and fill the hole with water each time you remove the rod and work it up and down. You can even wiggle it around as you drive it down with your hands or a hammer. Believe me a friend told me how to do this and I had my first ground rod in the earth within a matter a minutes with no real effort. The water is the trick. Really makes the soil like the mud it is. Try it. Save your back and money. No need to rent a tool. Just a shovel and water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stays straight for all 8 feet This is a good rod. The top maintained it's shape during the entire installation. The bar did not flex or bend. Very happy with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ground Rods 5/8" Great price for the quality. I used a De-Walt ground-rod electric driver. it went in smoothly without the rod vibrating or wobbling.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not 5/8" Labeled 5/8" diameter with factory label. Online specifications clearly state 0.625", which is 5/8", but rod barely measures 9/16" diameter. Not really a big deal unless you drive 15 miles to get a 5/8" copper rod based on "Specifications"
