This seems to be a trend. A.C. Electrical connections.

More and more I am finding a lot of these electrical flexible conduits coming loose or burned up from the weather and sun.

It would seem that the manufacturers would have done the research and found that the condiut will not hold up to the harsh treatment of the sun and weather.

The connection nuts are falling off. This has been found on a number of homes.

 

Conduit nut loose and not connected.

Notice the burned look on the conduit? It's from the sun beating down on the flexible conduit.

The buyer tried to reinstall the conduit and nut but it just would not go back on. 

It makes you think that "how many more of these are fallig off all over the country".

Have a great day every one.

Hi Robert,

You are exactly right. Way too much plastic where plastic should not be. Too much sun and it will warp the plastic making it unusable.

Thanks for the comment and have a great day.

Hi Jay,

Maybe it's the heat. We are in a very hot climate and it routinely gets over 100 all the tine.

As far as the Kitty band aid.

Have a good day my friend.
