Could you comment on this 'change' I made to a grounding scenario. At a pavilion (outdoor) I noted several times that the clamp affixing the ground wire for the service had been pulled off or just fallen off from the protruding ground rod. I had tightened the screws in the clamp at least once but still it happened. So I added some JB WELD Permalock thread locking glue on the rod surface and pushed the clamp onto the rod and tightened it. THEN..... I read where JB Weld is not conductive, more a resistance to current flow. Do you think the tiny amount between the rod and clamp I attached would reduce the flow of current to ground if ever that flow was needed due to an issue?
