Contractors in CT usually install generators in one of a few ways: on top of a bed of gravel, on poured concrete or directly on the ground. Each method works, but each has problems. When it comes to the safety and protection of your family, your home, and your generator, L-Train Electric knows exactly what to do.
SOME CONTRACTORS CHOOSE TO: Install your generator directly on the ground. This option may be the quickest, but certainly not the wisest. L-TRAIN understands that to keep a quality generator working correctly (not to mention within code and under warranty) it needs to sit up and out of the dirt and mud. Usually, people fix this by putting down a bed of gravel and setting the generator on top of it. Unfortunately, there is another problem that comes along with this. Gravel shifts and settles and the waffle-board pattern on the underside of the attached plastic pad will cause any generator to sink over time. Since generators weigh more on one end than they do on the other, they settle unevenly and a dealer needs to make a return trip to relevel the unit.
Ground, gravel or concrete. Until recently, they were your only real options. Why choose a method that's destined to fail or waste time and money? You may not have had an option in the past.. but now you do.
Every Generac generator installed by L-Train Electric sits safely on a GenPad. A GenPad takes what works and gets rid of everything that doesn't. They keep generators out of the dirt and above grade, getting rid of the bed of gravel. The flat bottom levels the unit and keeps it from sinking into the ground. The solid construction replaces poured concrete, and the built-in steel inserts let you bolt the generator directly to the pad, eliminating damage to the unit from shifting or sliding. These pads cost less than hauling and installing a bed of gravel and less than pouring a concrete pad at the site. They are sturdy enough to support a residential generator, easy enough to set straight on the ground and professional enough to use in the biggest contracts. GenPads WORK.
