Direct Burial Pole Installation
Make The Hole: Hole should be round with smooth vertical sides consisting of undisturbed soil for best compaction and stability of poles. Diameter of holes should be about 2 times the diameter of the pole at its base. Holes should be hand dug or augured. For general burial depth consult the chart below:
|Overall Pole Length||Burial Depth|
|12’, 15 & 20FT||4 FT|
|25’ & 30 FT||5 FT|
Wire the Pole: Complete wiring utilizing approved methods.
Install the Pole: In many cases aluminum poles can be manually lifted into place and inserted into the hole.
Level the Pole: Use a plumb bob or level to align the pole.
Backfill the Hole: Concrete is the preferred backfill material, brace pole until concrete sets.
