Hey Whezz, welcome to the forum!

I knew a guy with that nickname once. He was 90Lbs soaking wet. One day a guy saw him walking around the job with the same piece of 1-1/4” pipe. The guy asked him “what are you doing with that piece of 1-1/4. He said “if I didn’t have this to carry around, I wouldn’t have anything to do”

That’s a mild weasel story.

I know it’s not you, but it reminded me of him. He looked like George Carlin. You don’t know a guy named Buzzy do you?

Sorry Weasel ...sometimes we need more info on the first post. Yes have worked on un-grounded systems before. We either made our own GF detectors or panel came with them.
Did you mean to say 90% of faults are in a motor? We found most are a broken pipe or flex

On the 3 phase delta system all l was trying to help the Electrician find his ground and to the one that said that it’s usually a broke pipe, it probably fed a motor

So as building superintendent that means you'll change the lightbulbs and take out the trash?



Cool.





So what was your question again?
