It is best to use underground wire.

Do you have a voltmeter? If you have one you will be able to locate the short on your fence line and determine where the voltage is “leaking” out. You may have a broken insulator, faulty underground cables, or poor connections on your wire splicing.

I have about 1.02 miles of fence run with 2 strands of 14 gauge wire. The fence is has 4 corners and on every corner i have the fence hooked up to 3 ground rods and as well at the charger i have 3 ground rods all are about 6 foot long. The charger is a 25 mile rated 12 volt fence charger. With that being said about half way around my fence im getting weak voltage not sure what the problem is.

You can use one to first test your energizer to ensure it is properly working. You can than test your fence to check the voltage, if it is reading below 2,000 volts, check your ground bed (earth) to make sure the voltage isn’t “leaking” there.

We have an electric fence that worked well for a few months but has since stopped. I have worked out it is because there was a copper earth used and galvanised wire as the fence. I have since installed 3 galvanised steel earth rods as earths however I am still not getting any conduct. Has the electrolysis permanently damaged the wire around the fence or is there a way to test and fix it?

Isn’t it wiser to just up size for said joules to load the circuit size and keep the ground bed engineered as you prescribe?
