Ground rods, also known as vertical rods, are solid metal rods or tubes. Tube rods can be filled with soil treatment chemicals. These rods require maintenance because you need to regularly add more chemicals.

To increase inductance in dry soil, you can use tube rods filled with soil treatment chemicals or enhance the soil with chemicals.

CAUTION Use clamps to connect a cable to the ground rod or two cables together. In underground connections, use exothermic welding.
