If you put enough silicone on the rod/pipe, you may be able to make it work at least as long as your warranty holds out.
Seriously bad / good luck . . . I mean, what are the odds?
What did you use to drive the rod? Slide hammer, rotohammer, hammer? That is, unless it's too painful to tell.
We use Miss Utility, which is free, and no, they don't. You can pay for locating privately-owned lines.Does your "One Call" service include customer owned hardware?
You know, like the branch circuit to the from the house to the detached garage?
Not twice.I've heard of someone driving a ground rod into primary wires. Not good
bmwnut, I too have to join the club. I was doing a service for a friend. I thought I'd hit a rock. My friend said that he'd get it in despite the rock. I figured, okay let's see. He comes back to me an hour or so later covered in sweat saying he'd gotten it. I went to look and it was down. After the job, I went to wash my hands and the water from the tap was black. I mentioned this to him and he said don't worry it happens from time to time. He found out the next day what had actually happened. It cost me $100.00 to have it fixed. He gave me the cut out section that I'll mount on a plaque.... petey
