Water and Electricity!

It’s true that water and electricity don’t mix! This relatively young circuit breaker box had water seeping in the along the main power cable from the power company meter mounted on the exterior of the home. The corrosive effects are plain to see! Unfortunately, this damage was too extensive and the whole panel and main service entrance cable needed to be replaced. Proper sealant was also applied at the cable’s entry point to prevent future damage from water seepage. Don’t let signs of rust on the exterior of your breaker panel go unchecked by a professional – a little while longer and this could have caused major damage to appliances or even resulted in a house fire!
