OK, this has very little to do with actual home inspections, but I just recommended replacement of a badly worn and damaged service entry cable from the mast to the meter. The buyer understood the recomendation but asked how they (licensed electricans) go about doing this without getting electrocuted.
I know I should probably know this, but never having personally repalced one nor even witnessing it, I am not certain. I would imagine it requires special equipment? Is there some method for cutting the power at the feeds while making the replacement
Just curious - I was embarrased not to know, but I never asked before....
