Here is what I had to take care of Friday morning... Complaint was the parking lot lighting was not working properly... Found this previously damaged conduit and conductors, and the "vinyl tape patch" job...

Nice cookup, find it here in NZ too on Streetlight circuits especially in newer subdivisions when contracts nearing the end.
and work gets rushed a little to make the deadline

Think that is bad... we stopped a local landscaper TWICE from trying to patch a conduit AND conductors they damaged with masking tape and garden hose!!!. It was a "347V" circuit that was live too!

I have learned the hard way several times why you don't trust landscapers, general contractors or ANYONE else to repair the electrical stuff they break.. My favorite nightmare was an 80' run of pipe from a panel to a swimming pool pump that changed from 3/4" to 1/2" somewhere in the middle. Pulling it was a, ehm, *female dog*
