Once installed properly the Planet Earth Electrode will give a very good earth resistivity value compared to the conventional earthing and since this earthing electrode resists the corrosion, the earth value will remain same with out much fluctuation. This earthing system does not require any maintenance except few buckets of watering during very hot summer season.
If it is installed properly as per our specification then it will show better result than conventional earthing System for many years.
Drill / Bore a hole of 4 - 6 Inch in diameter at a place where earthing is to be done, to a suitable depth of 2 - 3 meters (Electrode Length).
Place the Earthing Electrode inside the PIT.
Mix the back fill compound nicely with the soil, which has been dug out.
Re-Fill the empty space around the Earthing Electrode with this compound mix soil.
While re-filling the space, pour adequate water in the PIT intermittently.
Pack the soil around the Electrode tightly and nicely.
Again pour adequate water at least 3 - 4 feet around the earthing Electrode.
Test the earth resistivity of the Electrode and if the result is satisfactory, then connect it with the equipments.
If the result is not satisfactory, then allow the Electrode some time (2/3 Weeks) for setting of the soil and then check it & connect it.
If the soil is of high resistivity i.e. Semi rocky or rocky soil, use back - fill compound only for refilling the PIT.
