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.
- 18" or 3' tall
- 1/2" diameter
How to Use
- 18" rods—space at least 27" apart
- 3 ft rods—space at least 5 ft apart
- 6 ft rods—space at least 10 ft apart
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.
In dry/sandy soil—use ground rods long enough to reach moist 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.

Very well made - good packaging. Expensive shipping charge.

We tried using a steel rebar rod for a grounding rod with our Premier 1 goat fencing and the charge the fence was getting was rather low and spotty. Not to mention the rod was hard to get out of the ground when we wanted to move it. We purchased this and it worked really well. We aren’t losing any voltage anywhere along the fence and it’s hitting pretty hard. Plus it’s super easy to get out of the ground since it has a handle.

A much better ground than the old galvanized pipes we used before. Our ground is seriously rocky. If we need to hammer them in, we put a wood block all the way across the top evenly, then hammer away. Still sometimes need to chain to the post puller to get them out. 'T' makes a good hold.
