Snapshots From The Field

What’s wrong with this picture?

Our inspectors are always finding interesting things in the field. Check out the below image and see if you can spot what’s going on.

On first glance, you might not notice anything strange—you see an outdoor outlet and a water hose hookup. It’s not the elements themselves, but the placement of the two that’s the problem. We talk about how water and electricity don’t mix a lot in this newsletter, and the outdoors are no exception. A water source should never be installed above an electrical source, as this could lead to electrocution and serious injury. The best course of action would be for the homeowners to disable the outlet entirely.
