Any ingress of water from anywhere other than around the Earth Rod Seal is the responsibility of the installation contractor. It is therefore essential that the Earth Rod Seal flange and components are free from dust/debris, grease/paint before pouring of the concrete is carried out. The concrete should be of the highest quality and fully compacted to ensure sealing.
Ultimately the performance of the Kingsmill Earth Rod Seal is dependent on the integrity of the surrounding concrete.
Under no circumstances should the main concrete slab be shuttered out and the Earth Rod Seal fitted at a later date.
Tools required to install a Kingsmill Earth Rod Seal are:
- Hole Saw and Electric Drill
- Sharp Knife
- Spirit Level
