    CQD - 12/5/23

    Hello Charlie, is there a maximum distance that ground rod(s) can be located away from a residential electrical service? The rods are located 28ft away from the service on the opposite side of the house in a planter near the water service. The Inspector is saying the rod(s) must be installed within 6ft of the service max?

    Thanks for your input, John L.
