i was called today to attend to a light circuit tripping when it rains...
they suspect that it could be the new light which was installed recently.
the cable on the left is an armoured cable.
there are other lights further down the fence...my concern is that the lights are all pvc light fittings with pvc lampholders...but the armoured cable earth wires are cut off at the first light which means that there is no earth further down...
what do you think should there be some sort of earth continuity thru out the length of the cable even though the fittings are pvc?
what do you think about the pvc pushin gland holding the armoured cable in the box?
what do you think about the standard junction box out in the weather (daves inspectors know the answer to this one from the job in westville) do you think i am being unreasonable requesting a weather proof box?
no rain drip on the cables?
not even silicon around the lid?
loose glands holding the cable?
cabtryre from the box to the lamp holder?
glands are not glued into te box as you can see it is pulling out on the left hand side because the cable is short.
i think i should request the coc for the light installation...or do you think its not neccessary to issue a coc for one light?
a list this long for such a small item?
i would hate to see any other work done by this person...i would jam up daves band width.
