Cheap in ground transformer

This really pissed me off when I saw this. Just a simple blowout, show up broken main right after POC and the well had produced silt and has clogged every valve.

Nice.... I would go the client and demand to know who installed that so that I could go and personally kick their a$$!

I've seen that a couple times. I advise they get it fixed, and move on. Seen worse things in life though.can't fix and change everything.

Im guessing the client did it themselves based on the pic... Yellow romex, in conduit, with a blue retrofit box, below grade.... No professional of any trade would hack it up that bad... I hope...

Looks like something a low voltage lighting hack might do. Almost as bad as putting a backflow preventer in a box below grade.

You would be surprised.Did a blowout a few weeks ago , system was installed by a landscaper and just about everything one could do wrong they did.
