    Grounding a concrete tank

    I have a problem, we have been asked to come up with a grounding scheme for a concrete tank. Normally no problem, slap a few ground rods and cadd weld to the rebar. Our civil guys have spec-ed out the rebar as epoxy coated and that is my problem, attaching to the rebar won't work. Anyone else encounter a situation like this and how did you get around it?

    If it were a swimming pool you would make your own bonding grid out of 8AWG copper. Same principle should work for your tank.
    If Billy Idol or John Denver is on your play list go and reevaluate your life.

    have them add some uncoated rebar just for you to connect to.

    why are you "grounding" a concrete tank? and what are you "grounding" it to are important questions to answer first though.
