No required distance from home itself.
(2) Rods are required.
Rods(as said) must be min 6' spread.
" " " must be 1" under earth surface upon completion.
USE acorn style clamps when attaching wire to Rod.(no splices or cuts on ground wire) slip thru 1st acorn clamp. (sell atDIY center) 1/2 x 8' rod fine.
#6 bare required to rods.
#4bare required to water system within 5' of where entering house.
You can use same hole for both.
Havent used SE cable always liked conduit upon entry.
My thoughts. GL
(if you were asking how far rods from poss the piping of gas and water, No restriction there.)
