Never let plumbers touch wire. Also, never let the guy who did this installation touch wire. Infact,don't let anybody related to him touch wire either. In fact...

Well, when the homeowner wants to hang a shelf and his nails keep getting bent, he's just going to reach for a drill anyhow- this saves him the trouble!
