Grounding near French Drain


New Member
May 14, 2022
I am wanting to put up my mast and ground rod. I had my basement done by Everdry. They put a French drain around my home that dumps the water into a drain and sump pump in my basement. I am thinking it's not a good idea to put a ground rod or mast in the ground near the drain. If it is hit by lighting, it could get into the drain and cook my sump pump. Question: should I move the ground rod and mast away from the home?
