Post Extensions From PVC Water Pipe
Wayne Beggs, Lincolnton, Georgia, found a low-cost way to lengthen his 6-ft. high electric fence by using short lengths of pvc pipe and short sections of T-post.
The 6-ft. high electric fence surrounds my vegetable garden and over the years Ive had problems with deer jumping over it, says Beggs. I decided to add extensions to the posts using 1 1/2-in. schedule 40 pvc water pipe, which I cut into 12-in. lengths.
I had some extra posts that were bent up so I cut them up into 18-in. lengths, and then slid them down about 6 in. into one end of each pvc pipe. I slid the other end of the pipe over the 6-ft. post and then used plastic clips to attach the electric fence line. Now the topmost electric fence tape is about 7 ft. high. No more problems with deer getting into my garden.
