These installers are "trouble shooting" an electrical fault in the sign lighting system!

Reminds me of the one with the person on the stepladder in the pool using an electric drill!

Where do these people come from!

Joe;
These must be some of the same people who receive advice from that Bob Vila DIY forum. Stupidity of this type should be a felony!

Now where did I put that defibrillator...

I love the way these guys are volunteering to remove themselves from the "DNA" pool.

More Darwin Award Candidates ?



By troubleshooting, do you mean they're checking and metering a live circuit?

yup...
save those who'll not 'face up', and instead sue the alum. ladder maker for producing conducable ladders without a pool hazard warning....

So then, it's still not proper to call a boat floor "finished grade"?

sparky, that's kinda' like the guy that—in very cold weather—puts up an extension ladder on the side of his barn to get on the roof.

He gets sidetracked and comes back to the ladder the next day. Part way climbing up, the ladder's rubber feet slide away from the wall for it was planted in cow dung that had thawed overnight.

The hayseed attorney was suing the ladder maker for not having instructions warning of the potential change in cow-dung viscosity with rising temperature.

Shouldn't there be code against mounting an electrical sign over a pool?
