I'm not an expert on this, but I think CuS04 might be pretty toxic. I don't know what your water supply is, but I don't think you'd wouldn't want the chemical leaching into a well. Just a thought. Dennis Hopkinton MA

For a high power coil, I'd use four to six 10 ft copper plated steel ground rods pounded at about a 45º angle with all their tops being at a center point. Even in a very cold area, like here in Colorado in the winter, that should be below the frost line sufficiently as the ends would still be 7ft down at that angle. I read where one guy liked to pound the rod about halfway into the ground and the 'wallow out' the hole a little and remove the rod and fill the hole with a good electrolyte solution(copper sulfate eg) then after that soaks in...maybe even repeat the filling a few times, then pound the rod all the way down. I have a disadvantage where I live...in the mountains.....there a great reason they are called the ROCKY mountains haha. It's hard to pound ten ft rods through the rocks. I do have one decent possibility for a good ground though....the leach field for the septic tank. It has a lil problem and one small area stays wet...even though it gets fairly cold here. I might have to buy a few 50lb bags of copper, potassium or magnesium sulfate and pour them onto that wet spot and let it diffuse through the whole field. I imagine that could make for a sufficiently conductive ground. The copper sulfate might have to be flushed down the sink or toilet though....it could kill the roots of the plants nearby if I just poured the crystals onto the ground.....that would not be the case with potassium or magnesium sulfate though.

  Once the water is no longer liquid, the ions that
allow current flow are trapped, more or less immobile.
If natural warming, or warming from current from coil
melts water around 'ground electrode', thing simprove.
