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

Does the complete 8 ft long rod need to be buried underground, or there'd be a couple of inches above ground for the clamp connection, i.e., the actual underground length would be slightly less than 8 ft?
Asked by: Keen
Keen, As usual, codes can very. Best practice is to get as much of the rod's length into the soil. Leave enough to make your connection, but don't bury it.

Is there a minimum distance the rod has to be from the house? I was told 3 feet by someone but can't find anything in the code.
Asked by: RT
I have not heard of any restrictions like that. I suppose, however that there is a 'practical' limitation, such as an increase in difficulty and awkwardness if one was trying to drive a rod just inches from the exterior wall/foundation of a building. If you're required to drive two rods, please note that there is a minimum distance between the two; normally six feet from each other.

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 just completed my grounding rod installation so it's still fresh in my mind. I had to drive it down 8 ft., the whole length of the rod, at least that's what the electrical codes for state of WA. requires.

5/8 in. x 8 ft. Copper Ground Rod is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Installed 3 of these (in series) for a ham radio... Installed 3 of these (in series) for a ham radio ground system. Soil near house appears to have gravel or rock field about 3 feet down. Thanks to water drill made from 1/2 copper pipe with a garden hose fitting on the top (refer to YouTube helpful videos) it was relatively easy to get all 8 feet into the ground by first making a 8 foot by 5/8 inch water-driven hole. Rods themselves are good quality. Used #6 stranded insulated wire and the "acorn" connectors to bring the ground wire inside to radio equipment.

Ok, here it is...It was the best rod I ever hammered into the ground; it's smooth sides let it effortlessly slip into the earth. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get their aggressions out on a very long copper stick!
