I took these a couple of years ago at a motel I was staying in.

I guess the town wasn't big enough for an electrician and a plumber so they opted for the plumber.

I'm glad you got out safely...

I honestly don't see any problems. I mean, they used wirenuts, so it's safe right

It's only considered safe if all of the wire nuts are pointing up. Otherwise all of the rain gets in.

Wow!,
Imagine all them lovely sharp edges inside them pipe joints.
Alan,
Is that box actually fastened to the wall?.
Judging by the marks on the side of it, this box has been "recycled".
BTW, is there a valve below that turns the supply on and off?.

1. Payday is Wednesday...
2. "Crap" flows downhill...
3. Do NOT put your fingers in your mouth...

The above mentioned are the 3 rules told to me by pipefitter on "how to be a plumber"....

( Sorry I am just poking fun at the plumbers, as they do to us sparkies, no offence meant by any means )

I don't know what to say, thats a priceless picture, I really like the way the grounds are just hanging around and the fine job the person did with the " ball 'O neutrals" in that split bolt...
Hmm, I wonder if he had a good time trying to get all them wires around that elbow at the top of that enclosure, or whats left of it

Beautiful split bolt on the neutrals. Could have used more spliceing tape for a secure connection. As I usually say Yuck, What a mess. Cannot belive that after living with electricity for over a hunmdred years we still find hazardus and foolish wireing in this day and age.
