Do we really want to incite the "plastic v. Metal" battle again?

Break out the asbestos underpants!

Why are there two white wires (presumably the "neutral" wires) and only one "hot" wire? (Look at the larger conduit.) The green conductor has white tape on it, also.

Really a poor glue joint on the larger conduit.

Physical Damage ?

I don't think so !!!!

This is clearly a result of "Mental" Damage...suffered by the installer afer he sniffed the glue he was supposed to use on the pipe......

The original installer should have complied with 352.12(B).

Isn't that enclousure actually supposed to be bolted or attached to something so that it is supported by something other than the conduit? Where did that support go, was it every there?

Incidentally Don, what is the jist of 352.12(B)? On my next trip to the U.S. I will purchase a N.E.C. code book.

I believe it should have been .12(B)&(C). In fact it is hard to tell by the picture, but the location may not even be suitable for this disconnect, it looks like a pullout or small disconnect.
