... to find the best Home Inspector you can!!!
Bill Zoller, a home inspector from Loveland CO, and U.S. Home Inspect, posted this recently. If this doesn't set your "spidey sense" tingling, I am not sure what will...
Answer: "Just didn't have time or tools to do it right."
The outlet you are looking at is near an existing outdoor spa. It's too large to fit into the visible junction box.
To make the arrangement “safe”, the installer protected the setup with a lot of electrician’s tape! The inspector who stumbled across this alteration also noted it was not GFCI protected.
“Sometimes ya’ just gotta’ wonder what they were thinking.”, was the response.
Thank you Jerry Arnold, from our Houston, TX area inspection team for this submission!
