Electric tape fence also has weaknesses! It is so efficient that once it is installed you are inclined to think that all your fencing problems are solved. The most important ways to make sure fences are secure is to check them regularly for trouble spots.
Check your fence regularly
Use a fence tester to check your fence and check the voltage on a regular basis to ensure at least 4000 volts on the fence line.
Check your fence tape and the connections regularly to discover and fix the problems before your horses get loose. Keep the fence tight and re-stretch it if necessary, the wind fl utter can break the wire conductors in a sagging tape. Look for broken insulators, broken tensioners, if any, do not hesitate to replace them. Inferior and cheap insulators that don't maintain the tape properly will end up cutting the wire conductors making the electric fence ineffective.
In the event of a broken tape, release enough tape from tension to allow slack and use the splicing buckle to reconnect the ends together.
Never make a knot with the tape.
Checks the batteries : the batteries might need to be changed and often it is so obvious, it doesn't come to mind. Check the fuses. If they are blown replace them. If they blow instantly, the charger has to be serviced where you purchased it. Make sure that you have selected the charger with the maximum energy for your circumstances. The impulse energy has to be more than 1 Joule output for small fences and more than 5 Joules output for long ones.
The charger is not operating
Although your fence charger is usually protected with a fuse, it is always better to turn off the fence when there is lightning or an electric storm. Lightning is a major cause of fencecharger failure.
Immediately after a storm, inspect your fence to make sure it is in good shape. A fallen tree might have fl attened your fence, opening up an escape route before you realize it.
In the event of a broken tape, release enough tape from tension to allow slack and use the Bi-Polar splicing buckle to reconnect the ends together. #BP34
