A Fence Novice asked: I have two dogs who are able to get under our backyard picket fence. Would this electric fence deter them from attempting to flee? My plan is to put up an electric wire about 8-12 inches off the ground. Is this feasible? May 5, 2014

jon s: I think the electric fence could work if:
- The wire(s) were run taught so the spacing was at a constant height, this is not an easy task...

The step in posts are NOT strong enough to use on the ends, they are VERY flexible.

The step in posts have only set positions and may not be the right spacing for your dogs.

Larry A: Shouldn't be a problem, just keep the grass cut under the wire or the grass will be able to short-out the electric fence and be ineffective May 6, 2014

A shopper asked: Would these be suitable for semi permanent to permanent fencing also how do they function as line post through ridges and valleys? Oct 15, 2013

Kris H: I've been using these for a few years, and I think they would work pretty well. There is no such thing as a maintenance free fence, of course! As Valerie T says, I wouldn't use them as my only property perimeter fence. My property is fairly flat, but I don't see uneven ground being an issue as long as you follow good fencing protocols. Using poly rope/twine rather than tape will reduce the wind pressure greatly on these posts.

Alternatively, I have a permanent fence made with the Sunguard 1/4" rod posts, which you drive in. Mine are in 12"-18" and I have had no issues in 5 years. They are a little cheaper, although not quite so easy to install.

Larry A: They are convenient for a semi-permanent application, but there is not enough depth underground to serve more than a one-season application. There is a lot of convenience of the post being fiberglass, but lacks the durability of metal rod fence posts Oct 15, 2013

jessica m: I would say it depends on your soil. if it's really wet they are easily pushed over, but in my case there used as a semi-permanent cross fence on hilly terrain and it's really solid. I have clay soil that's wet in spring and like concrete in summer. Oct 17, 2013

Valerie T: I wouldnt use them as your only fencing.... I used mine as cross fencing, but I did have to put posts back up every now and then as they aren't very sturdy. Did the job I needed them to do. Oct 15, 2013
