Wet Wet Wet!
Currelec was called to a client who tripped out their electricity every time they used the outside light. There was a junction box outside, just over the kitchen door, so it seemed a good place to start. When we removed the lid, a large quantity of water poured out!
While the box lid had a brilliant weatherproof seal, the person who installed it had drilled four holes in the back to screw it to the wall, but then didn’t seal around all four screws!
We cut off the ruined connectors, cleaned and dried the wires and the box, resealed it and replaced the connectors.
All sorted.
