I just did a inspection on a three family home. I noticed a line coming out of the Elec. Pwr Box with its own ckt breaker It is a 220V line. It is runing from the basement, clamped to floor joist, going “THRU” rusted Bilco doors, Clamped to Alum siding, runing behine out side oil tanks. under leader, (it was raining that day and the water drain was pouring right on the 220V line) and thru hole in alum siding into apartment conected to 220V recepital which is not mounted-just laying on floor for electric stove. Besides the fact that there is no calking on the in and out holes (definitely water entry point) this looks like a code violation. I would assume that wiring of this type should run thru wall framing and be mounted. Is there some place I can go to to get some help on this matter, or site a code violation number? Thank You Guys
