Chemical Earthing is use of bentonite based or graphite based compound along with earthing electrode (a pipe or a rod) that helps in improving soil condition and reducing the soil resistivity.

 

Chemically treating the soil can be an effective method to achieve lower soil resistivity. Chemical ground rods can provide a permanent soil treatment solution for a low impedance ground. Comprised of a 2” or larger hollow copper rod, the electrode is filled with an electrolytic salt mixture.

 

The rod derives moisture from the soil and atmosphere and utilizes the moisture to slowly Chemical Ground Rods 2 dissolve the electrolytes in the rod creating a conductive rooting effect, providing an ever increasing lower resistant ground in any type of soil. The rod should be refilled periodically to provide long-term soil treatment.

 

Chemical Earthing is use of bentonite based or graphite based compound along with earthing electrode (a pipe or a rod) that helps in improving soil condition and reducing the soil resistivity. Bentonite is a clay which is mined and known for its' water retention capacities. Other components are conductive in nature.
