"Use Copper Tubing To Set Ground Rod:"

From: Robert L. Wieneke rlwieneke@juno.com

I use a copper pipe or tube about the same size and length as the ground rod with a short piece of garden hose and a female garden hose fitting circular clamped to the end of the pipe or tube. Then attach a on / off valve ( from the hardware store ) attached to a garden hose and let the water drill a hole into the ground. After you drill the length of the pipe or tube into the ground, turn the water off, pull it out and easily knock the ground rod down the wet hole and let it sit. After the dirt settles around it you have a nice tight fit.
