There seems to be a lot of un-supported wiring in them pics, or are they hoses?.

Our company supplied the power, and the owner of the plant had his guys do the rest.Yes there is a lot of un-supported wire( It is a type of liquid flex, but it has rubber wrapped around the wires and then the metal and then a black pvc. If I go back to that job I will find out the type of cable it is. Check out the size of the cabinet, they really need some more room in there.

Looks like a Poland Springs water bottle to me... Great place for it.
