2 feet of green duct tape--$.03

Getting away before the AHJ sees this abortion--PRICELESS!

You really can't see it from the photo, but the LB is completely busted in two, breaking the ground path. This is on a 200A 3 phase service entrance to a municipal parking garage. Has been like this for at least a year.... [Linked Image]

I don't see the problem. They used green tape to mark the ground path.

The Silver ductape contains some metal.
Perhaps the proper way would be to use silver ductape, and then cover it with the green to mark the grdg path? [Linked Image]
