Using a utility pipe for grounding of electric fence?
I was about to hammer in a 10' copper pole into one corner outsides of our house to be the grounding for my electric deer fence, but I noticed a near-by copper pipe (1/2")for propane gas which is burried 18" underground and about 100' from where I was to the gas tank. I was wondering whether I could save a few bucks and sweat by using this copper pipe for my electric fence's grounding? Although the pipe is only 18" underground, the 100 gallon propane tank must be at least 10' below the ground. Any thoughts and advice about this would be greatly appreciated.
