TOPIC: Let's try something new: water + electricity = ???

Let's try something new: water + electricity = ??? 11 years 11 months ago #36458

Here is some great workmanship, courtesy a lazy electrician.  When I opened the panel at today's inspection, I noticed a shiny substance on a couple wires...WATER!  Put my hand on top of the panel...WATER!  Take a peek up...DRIP!  Right on the face, WATER! 

The service was updated on this home from the pole to the house.  They also updated the panel inside.  But instead of removing and repairing the old masthead and entrance, they simply cut it off, leaving the conduit running through the wall, into the attic, down to the basement. 

Drip, drip, drip...

I bet this was a REO.
Guy probably never got paid and left it as is.

Bob, it's a trust...kids are trying to sell it.  The masthead pic I have isn't very good.  Bad thing is:  this guy is still out there doing this kind of work.

I would bet that there is no inspection sticker on the new panel?  if there is then the electrical inspector is not qualified to inspect my dogs house.....and I don't even have a dog..hahaha :o
