Driploop connections

The drip loop appears to be keeping water away from the weatherhead, but is directing the water onto the mechanical connections. Is this truly a problem? Please give me your opinions or in the applicable rules of possible. Thanks, Karl. :smiley:

I recognize that connection as being a Burndy H-tap connection. It may be buried, underwater, subject to rain, any just about any other environmental condition that can be thrown its way. The connection, when made with approved tooling, is “gas tight”, and will not corrode. The connection is also prefilled with oxide inhibitor. The H-tap cover is also self draining, and will not hold water for long, and is of a design that promotes airflow within the clamshell type cover.

I don’t see a problem with the drip loop.

Thank you for the comments.
