I ran into this beauty a little while ago and wanted to read more about the proper way to splice wires of this size.
I’m a new inspector and can’t claim to know much about splicing large wires. When I ran into this pretty box I bouncy housed it to an electrician immediately.
Wait… What I meant to say is that “I recommend further evaluation by a reputable, licensed electrical contractor.”
Anyway. What I do know is what shoddy work looks like and 9 times out of 10 if you see a lot of electrical tape an electrician didn’t put it there. So I have a few questions.
How bad is this? On a scale of 10 with 1 being “calm down” and 10 being evac immediately.
Anyone have links to articles on what this repair should look like when done properly?
Thanks guys! Be safe out there,
