That service is going to be leaking water after the first year..

The company was Caron Electric : http://www.caronelectric.com/

He didn't even put a ring of duct seal on the hole it was just about a half moon shape piece, he didn't caulk the top of the MP and I thought the duct seal on the screw washers was lame, not too fond of SEU services anyway. The whole job looked pretty friggin hack.

He did say the ground rods must be driven to insure people do not get shocked, which EC's should know is completely wrong! Right Dennis?

That was a 4# hammer at best, Estwing doesn't make one bigger than that and it looked and sounded like the HO was hitting a root or pipe when he still had about two foot or driving left to do. I guess a professional company like that can't afford a ground rod driver.
