Until that place has at least 4-5 failed meters, it's not even broken in.

You didn’t even scratch the paint. Nice job. I appreciate someone who pays attention to detail.

There's probably three air conditioners running off that, no problem.

NEC is soooo over-rated.

He self extricated.

He used to post up photos of these really crappy service installs and tell us how proud he was of them.

Nothing technically wrong with the installs, and seemed code compliant but I think he must have taken a few hits on a bong before he decided on the layout. Just weird collections of offsets and bends and way too many straps.
