I work with electrical engineers every day and while some actually work installs well. Most of them are pretty scary. This picture would actually be considered fairly well done [Linked Image]

That looks more like a temporary test lashup than a permanent install. [Linked Image]

I think it's probably safe to say that it doesn't come under the requirements of "neat and workmanlike."

...Maybe a sanitation engineer. The install looks like $%^&$%&. Seems like a bizarre place to mount equipment, on the side of w water heater [Linked Image]

Wonder why there are two transformers, and only one is connected...?

That's a spare for when the first one burns out because there's no OCP. [Linked Image]
