Improper Wiring

July 08, 2011

The homeowner had decided to do some re-wiring of his older, very nice home. Probably a good idea to update the old electrical system. Except for one very large problem. Notice in the picture that we can only see the black and the white wires that are tied together with wire ties and taped. He did not tie together the ground wires - He just snipped them off.

The entire house was driving me crazy - everything showed open ground. All of the electrical outlets and switches were not properly grounded.It's a wonder that someone did not get electrocuted.
