T Ground Rods
This ground rod features a unique T handle, which makes it easier to grip when removing from soil.
The ground system is an essential component of any electric fence. Ground rods guide the pulse from the soil, back into the energizer. The larger the pulse or higher the resistance of the soil (because it’s dry, sandy, or rocky), the more ground rods that are needed to collect the electrons from the soil.
- Heights: 3 ft or 18"
- Diameter: 1/2"
How to Use
- Allow 3 ft of ground rod per joule of energy output. 18" ground rods are to be used with energizers with outputs of 0.5 joules or less.
- Space 18" rods at least 27" apart
- Space 3 ft rods at least 5 ft apart
- Space 6 ft rods at least 10 ft apart
- In dry/sandy soil—use ground rods long enough to reach moist soil

This works very well indeed. You need a good ground for an electric fence not to fade over time. Something like this should really be sold with every fence energizer. Easier to move around than others. Make sure the clip is tight.

Super convenient to move around when I move my fence. I put it in the must buy category.

Easy to use in my sandy soil.

This was the perfect replacement rod for our fence. We were able to get it deep enough in the rocky ground and it’s more stable with better contact. We’ve been so satisfied with every purchase from Premier 1 and confident our animals are protected even though our property is adjacent to the National Forest with heavy predator populations.

These are great to have around on the farm. I have them in both sizes. Easy to install and easy to remove. The only negative is that because I move them a lot, after about a year they are starting to give out at the top of the T.
