This Ground Rod Kit comes with everything you need to get your electric horse fence up and running! If your electric fence charger isn’t grounded properly, your horse containment fencing will be compromised and your horses could run free and/or escape. Our electric fence ground rod kit promotes proper grounding of electric horse fence chargers. This kit includes three 5' ground rods, three clamps, and 50 feet of galvanized wire.
Installation: Ground rods should be placed at least 25 feet from your fence charger/energizer or the charger/energizer may get damaged during an electrical storm. The ground rods should also be at least 50 feet away from any underground piping, cable, or any other grounding system and near the fence line. A ground rod closer than 50 feet from a waterline (even if the waterline is plastic) may cause signal interference on your home computer, phone, radio, television, or anything else that requires an electrical signal.
*Note: We recommend a minimum of three ground rods spaced at least 10 feet apart in a triangular configuration. For added effectiveness, you may purchase an additional ground rod here and place it at the furthest point away from the initial three rods.
