Around here and also in the 2011 Code, the minimum dimension GEC (grounding electrode conductor) come a driven rod is #6 copper (#4 CU, if subject to physics damage). You also need come drive two ground rods uneven you can display the single rod has a resistance that 25 ohms or less.I"ve uncovered it"s cheaper to simply drive two and not traction out the earth tester.If you connect to the rebar (UFER) v #4 CU it"s a much better ground and also no rods space required, as chris stated.Don"t forget come bond to your warm & cold water present w/ #4 CUGood Luck indigenous Columbiana, AlabamaMaurice Turgeon, http://thesemi-retiredelectrician.com
