This was found by a housing inspector and sent to me from an Electrical Inspector friend of mine. I don't have any more information though

Also, shouldn't there be a bonding jumper around that metallic gate valve?

This gets my vote as the "Best Photo of 2005" what an absolute IDIOT.

Monofilament is only good for grounding branch circuits. The main service ground needs to be polypropylene rope to get enough ampacity... [Linked Image]

could that be a steel pipe going through the wall? it doesn't look like pvc.they make a threaded elbow that can be screwed on to a steel pipe.but itdepends on the pipe going to the ground outside too.

I seem to recall having to set straight an apprentice who insisted that it was necessary to do this! It was several years ago...

I have always wondered when something like this would show up. Good thing Roger has the pic. Otherwise no one would believe it.

He forgot to cross bond to the handwheel of the valve. [Linked Image]

Circuit man, I've got a rather fancy monitor- and it most certainly is white PVC going through the wall!

To quote an inspector (retired) with whome I just shared thei pic:
"I can't believe anyone would be that dumb!"
