Michael,


By the looks of the ceiling, they must have just been spraying the hose up to the ceiling, letting it 'rain' into the plant. Electrifying. ![icon_smile.gif](upload://b6iczyK1ETUUqRUc4PAkX83GF2O.gif)

I would have written it up as “recommend plant hanger be changed to metal for extra shock hazard in order to make it a tamper resistant installation” … icon_eek.gif

Robert,


Then the metal plant hanger would need to be grounded.

Wait, we have 'ground' in the plant basket. We'll just stick the 'ground' wire into the 'earth ground'. ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif)

Okay Jerry … icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif


How about this:

"Recommend that the wiring be upgraded to a modern 3-wire system, and the outlet box upgraded to provide proper grounding. It is also recommended that the the currently insulated plastic hanger be upgraded to a properly grounded metal plant hanger, for a super extra shock hazard and double extra tamper proof installation"

Robert,


Or

"Recommend using only double insulated plant hangers when connected to electrical boxes." ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif)

Did we trade sides?
