Hi, all concerned:
My building-entry power ground (rod), here in Cincinnati is, well, in
not-so-good condition, after years in service.
The line comes in above grade to a corner of the building, through trees,
from a pole 75 feet away at the county roadway.
When the rod is replaced, would there be an additional lightning-strike
safety benefit to adding "some number" of short radials to it?
What are the *technical* pros and cons of burying the line?
Can physically-separated grounds be tied together with buried copper water
pipe sections brazed together?
TIA & 73,
