We were having a problem today (Friday) with an outdoor electrical outlet. When we plugged a pond pump into the outlet, it was tripping a couple of switches in the breaker box. My regular electrician was unavailable so I called another local company. The telephone agent told me the price would be $59. for them to come and check it out. Two affable, friendly men came when promised. One of them told me the outdoor outlet did not have a junction box. It had worked without incident for almost 25 years, but the electrician told me it was hazardous. My retired engineer wife agreed. So we wrote them a check for $327. to install a junction box. I have no reason to doubt their integrity. However, my years as an investigative reporter has me wondering.
