What comes out of the NEMA box on top of the meter base.... power theft point, perhaps?

Nasty, hacked up electrical, and that roof pond does not look too healthy either.

Very fortunate this didn't evolve phase-to-phase and destroy the riser.

Agree with DougW, what's up with the can above the meter base? Hack substitute for a proper hub maybe?

edit: And is that bypass lever engaged and continuing to feed the building?

on the second photo i did notice on main lugs above the socket and i did see the diffrent conductor on left hot line lug look like copper wire is there and the rest is alum wire and this socket this is delta service becaue i can tell by hot conductor with red wild leg on right side of it and also the netrual wire it is copper also so this is very instering set up

Merci, Marc

Has anyone checked the gasket on that LB? If that thing starts to crack up due to age/sunlight/heat, the riser turns into a funnel.

I have seen a lot of places with burn outs due to cracked or torn gaskets. Most people don't even think about checking them or changing them out, even though it is relatively cheap versus the cost of replacing whole services.
