Quote from: MountainDon on August 25, 2010, 03:37:26 PMI measured between the steel pole, some 5 feet in the ground and the first ground rod and I had quite low ohms. But since the rod and pole were fairly close together I didn't think it counted. I decided two rods would be good/better. Two rods are about 9 -10 feet apart and gave something like 16 between the two rods. So I guess I ended up with "good" even though all I knew was to aim for 25 ohms or less. I can check by disconnecting the ground wire at one rod and metering between them. I should probably run a check next time to see what it reads with the ground well saturated, then again in November after things dry out. Thanks, Dave. I try hard but am not in the professional league. I appreciate any and all assistance to give to clarify and help keep things safe.
