The 'bucket of water' method was taught to me by a commercial two-way
guy years ago.  Same guy that introduced me to polyphasers.

Soak the ground where you want your rod.  Push the rod in as far as you
can with your hands, then pull it back out.  Pour some water into the
hole until it runs out.  Let it soak in a few seconds, then push the
ground rod in again.  When you can't push any deeper, pull the rod out
again and repeat water application.  Repeat until the rod is all the
way in.  It usually takes 5-10 minutes and one bucket of water.
