That's something I was unaware of - soil so dry it's not an effective ground. Doesn't sound like pouring water on them is a viable solution unless you have some sort of drip irrigator doing it automatically. How much longer than 6' do ground rods need to be to make good earthing contact?

Look up chemical ground rod. Ufer grounds came into being during WWII. The U.S. needed to protect bomb shelters in the deserts of the Southwest U.S.

contact?

Probably needed to protect munitions from static charges, too.
Here's one site I found: (-:
<http://www.psychologicalharassment.org/news/mobbing-in-modern-society/1563- radar-assault-weapons-a-faraday-cages-ground-and-grounding-rods>
<<Human right defenders and citizens who are targeted by the mob in Canada need a faraday cage, the mob is using energy assault weapons, powerful radar, to inflict different deadly cancers. Thick metal plates, thick copper wires or cables, and a good ground source like a city-household's copper pluming are what is needed for a good faraday cage and protection against radar assaults from neighboring homes or any other source. Note: another problem technology used by organized crime, focused ultra sound, the weakness is water containers . . .
They recommend:
Chemical Ground Electrode System
http://www.erico.com/products/ChemRod.asp "ERITECH Chemical Ground Electrodes provide a low-impedance ground in locations of high soil resistivity. Together with GEM as backfill, the system dissipates lightning energy and other dangerous electrical fault currents, even in sandy or rocky soil conditions. Features -- 2-1/8 (54mm) OD Type K copper pipe contains natural electrolytic salts that permeate into the surrounding soil, lowering resistivity"
Apparently these are ground "tubes" filled with chemicals and some appear to be able to wick moisture from the air. Fascinatimg.

And yet here you are pontificating on grounding systems, proper ground connections, sending a poster to look for any ground connections to a water pipe and telling them it's "no longer code". Go figure.

Ok - You must be busy, but what caused the fire, and the outside spigot involvement??? You have many folks waiting to hear.

Since you just joined this topic, you may not know that the OP already admitted (on 10/31/2013) that this was just a fake post and that none of what he was posting was true.

Must have been a post I never saw. It could well be fake, but "Happy Halloween" is not proof of that.

I also fail to see how two people wondering whether it is a troll proves that it is.
The OP responded to that on Halloween with "Happy Halloween" Definitely a bit odd, but far from an admission of fakery.
