Ground Rods (or Earth Rods)
A ground rod is a safety element of an electrical system which dispels a static discharge voltage (such as Lightning) away from an electrical circuit and reroutes it into the ground. Grounding rods are an essential part of all electrical systems for safety reasons. It’s important to know the different varieties available and how they interact with different soil conditions to prevent grounding problems.
