Another early 20's installation (according to records). But I've never seen this setup.
The meter pan tells me there are no fuses inside so I didn't break the seal to check
Turns out to be another one of those "15 Amp Meters"
The service panel is located inside the home and is only 20A. An equipment panel is located just to the left of it.
Yes, that is the water heater in the way.
I have no idea what the breaker capacities are for the equipment panel.
Can anyone shed some light on to this type of set up. This is for discussion rather than help with my report. This is one of those rare cases where I recommended complete replacement rather than try and list the defects. I hope you're okay with that Jerry
