Customer Question
I'm istalling a ground...

I'm istalling a ground wire for my WiFi system/cable box and TWC

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Requires 8' but I'm told that in rocky ground, I can cut an 8' cu and put together and clamp with one 1 out of ground. Is this acceptavle ? Thanks

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes but I'm a licensed engineer.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No, just wondering if this will work
