How do you maintain the earthing resistance?..

Answer / kumarabharathi

Earthing Resistance can be maintained by adding
water,charcoal & salt per month,Not only by adding those
three, Its rusted bolt& Nuts must be renewed by new one for
every three month,this maintenance should be varied depand
upon the climatic conditions, such as in rainy season.Earth
pit must be fenced with cement.

How do you maintain the earthing resistance?..

Answer / ashish patil

by pouring water ,charkol and salt is used but it is old
method.use pouring of Bentonite powder by using water.
Also to reduce earth resistance by parralel resistance to
earth mesh.it cen achived upto 2ohm.

How do you maintain the earthing resistance?..

Answer / pillay

dont just add water and salt it is very boring, add some curry powder and meat as well it will be more spicy.
the best solution would be to add more earth pits in parallel till you get your targeted resistance reading or lower.

Answer / rajendra soni

monthly check of earthing resistance by good earth
resistance meter.
by pouring water ,charkol and salt when ever you find that
earthing is increasing

How do you maintain the earthing resistance?..

Answer / william lobo

Better to use stainless steel bolts nuts and washers since
GI ones tend to deteriorate and get corroded after a long
time and it becomes difficult to open the bonding,
connection for taking measurements.
Simple method is pour lot of salt and water around the
earth electrode and surely you will get a very good value
of earth resistance instantly.
