What a great Idea! Service drop doubles as a rain water collector. I'm sure the energized wires helps to sterilize the water too. Those wires are live arent they?

Is that a strip of insulation tape being used to patch a leak in the shingles behind that pipe?

I did not take the picture so I can not provide any real details.

A home inspector took this picture and included it in his report calling this 'service' out for evaluation.

He got a call back.

Received a call from my client today stating that the seller's agent had someone who was a retired inspector for the city and he said this is alright and there is no need to fix this item.


Call me picky I think this should be fixed.

Did the local POCO actually hook this up!?! Even when the cable was new, anyone with half a brain could see it was an accident waiting to happen!

And triplex burns and explodes quite nicely, too.


Stupid should be painful.
