Product Overview

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

Answer: 
use a rotary hamer with a special attachment that fits over the end of the rod. with some patience it could probably drive one straight through bedrock, everything else the rod slides through like butter. not a job i would want to do by hand.

Answer: 
You really need to check with your building inspector. It appears that having the entire rod in contact with the soil is more important than the depth. In some case they allow it to be at a 45 ° angle. Have heard in cases of a ledge where they allow it to be buried 2' deep horizontally.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very affordable for copper Good for getting things up to code. takes about 30 minutes to hammer in the ground. May 3, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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" March 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Not solid copper but at the price I wouldn't expect that ... The description for the rod should read copper clad grounding rod since the rod is not solid copper. There is no information on what metal is used in the core but it's UL listed so I'm sure what ever it is up to code. May 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 25, 2012
