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
The NEC requires the whole length to be buried. Use a direct bury clamp to connect wire to it below grade.

How to get this in the ground?

Would I hammer, dril ?
Asked by: User148838828384993
Driving a ground rod by hand, using water works well. Push the rod into the ground, withdraw it. Pour some water down the hole. Reinsert ground rod, withdraw and repeat. You can generally get the whole length in the ground without using a hammer.

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
In San Diego County, CA you can install TWO-8ft rods, chained together with bare copper of the appropriate size for your load panel. They must be spaced at least 6ft apart for them to have proper ground soil contact. This gives you an effective ground rod of at least 8 ft when tethered together.

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
Per NEC code, that's not deep enough. Try to move the rod to a different location. Or, drive on an angle at 45 degrees and bury it in a trench 30" deep.
