Maybe they used the flex because they were too cheap to buy a drain fitting??

Looks more like the disco for a removed unit, a pretty common site on a house around here when thieves are working the neighborhood.

I checked it with a pen tester and there was no chirping. I assume it is a dead/bypassed circuit.

If the piece of sealtight is leaving the disco and is not in use. It should be removed. I agree with John that those clamps here in NJ is called Cowboy clamps. The reason they were called that ( As I was told) was because the looked like a spur on a cowboys boot. Go figure that one from Jersey? If the Sealtight is UL listed for UV and protection from physical damage, Then maybe you would have to pass that job. Is it sloppy? Yes, Proper Workmanship like install? No!

I've always known those clamps as a "Mae West"

Need I ask? Simple solution, have an electricain disconnect the power and get a battery powered sawzall then run the circuit CORRECTLY.

I have a sense of adventure, I just keep it leashed with common sense.
