Just did Inspection on single family. Have question about Grounding Wires.
1- From neutral bus bar have copper wire going through panel to water pipe. That is a good ground connection. Above copper, same neutral bus bar, have "Aluminum" wire exiting panel, and exiting exterior wall going to outside house meter. Aluminum Ground wire is going inside, thru bottom, of meter box. Aluminum? Meter Box?
2-Below meter box is a outside main disconnect with a double 100amp breaker.
3-Now panel box in house(would that be a sub panel off outside main disconnect??) has a total of 8 single breakers (120) and 2 double breakers (240). Now, with the main breaker outside, should the inside panel have no more than 6 breakers to shut house down? If so what would be a good way to word that on report.
4-And last have hot wire spliced with wire nuts (2 places) going to hot side of breaker. Wire was not long enough so they spliced it. One to a 15amp and second to 20amp
