How is the FOGRod mounted?
The FOGRod hangs from its own cable – it is designed for this. It comes with a mounting bracket that you fix under the hatch so that the FOGRod can hang in the turbulent part of the well – near the inflow. The mounting bracket also comes with an S-hook and a zip tie – loop the cable so that the FOGRod will hang near the bottom of the well, use the zip tie and hang it from the S-hook:

The cable to FOGRod connection can support at least 180 lbs of weight so there’s no problem with the weight of the rod, even with huge buildup – or with pulling the FOGRod up through the squeegee that is part of the bracket.
