Select an area as close to power entry panel as possible to install grounding rod. Then assemble the first
grounding rod and coupling to the slide hammer rod.
Do not allow grounding rod to rotate when removing the slide hammer rod. Rods must be kept
screwed together to make a good electrical ground.
Before driving grounding rod be certain that rods meet inside coupling. Be sure collar is
handtight against coupling.
Place slide hammer on hammer rod end, and drive grounding rod into ground. Remove slide hammer rod.
Attach slide hammer rod to a new section of grounding rod, and repeat procedure until only 12 in.(30.5 cm) of the third
rod is above ground.
Remove slide hammer and hammer rod, and place in section.
Mount grounding cable clamp and grounding cable to grounding rod.
