Electric Fence Maintenance

Just like the old adage, “You get what you pay for,” a good electric fence that stays in working order is going to be a product of several factors. One of those is purchasing quality electric fencing supplies. The next is erecting an electric fence using the good quality supplies with a lot of hard work that would make for a quality job.

Once you have a good fence in place, it will still require maintenance. To begin with, a check on electrical output daily is necessary. Most electric fence chargers have a feature built in that makes that easy. This feature will have an indicator, usually a light, that will respond positively if the circuit is not interrupted, i.e., if the fence is not grounded.
