Skilled trades you say, John?. I don't believe you. Is that an un-supported and uncovered length of Romex in pic no. 2?, running through the garden? Hope there is a good GFCI on that circuit. Clowns.
That down-spout stuff has to be the worst looking shoddy thing I have ever seen. If someone installed that on my house they would be back PDQ to replace it with something that doesn't look like it was stolen from a woodworking shop.

Mike, the "unsupported romex" is actually UF -underground feeder - a continuation of the run to the well pump.
I confess that I did not look too closely at the A/C ... I was there on a sewage pump problem. My work did not involve anything 'outside the pit.'
A curious detail in the pit was that the pump was powered by the panel that you see. The alarm, however, was powered from another panel, on an entirely different service (meter), on a different building.
Rumor has it - I don't know this for a fact - that this was actually the home of the head of one of the local contractors' groups (We have at least four).
:-| My own house has a plumbing 90* line side of the incoming underground service - a 2" 90*!- I'll submit a pic. asap, as we're building a new place and using the "existing" Hpp.(location) I want to record it for a before/after when I change it all (I was a little surprised -but relieved (financially)- to find that the local AHJ doesn't require the service to be attached to the house itself. -since the utility contractor shows up after inspection I guess he can do whatever he wants (my guess is that the service is about 15 years old - wasn't allowed THEN either)
