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.
