All of our services are aluminum. We usually use aluminum for anything over 100A because of cost

2018-03-14 03:50:54 UTC  

Oh my



>choose one

2018-03-14 04:40:19 UTC  

Bruh, I don't run the company

2018-03-14 19:29:44 UTC  

I would say that the majority of electrical fires ive been to has had aluminum wires and zynscos

2018-03-14 19:46:15 UTC  

As long as you use pertrox or something, and torque everything down, it works good. I've been on a lot of huge, high profile commercial installations that use aluminum.

2018-03-15 01:15:18 UTC  

I would definitely advise scheduled harmonic checks. The aluminum conductors have a history of shifting

2018-03-15 01:16:00 UTC  

But i know most other contractors live by the it only has to last one year and my assets are safe rule

2018-03-15 01:17:18 UTC  

You would be amazed how often i find service conductors loose or the dreaded arcing from a loose neutral

2018-03-15 01:45:17 UTC  

My company included

That white stuff on the back of the door is asbestos.

2018-05-03 18:54:13 UTC  

@RevStench extremely cool. Is that porcelain?

2018-05-03 18:55:35 UTC  

I would think it is, but I don't know for sure.

2018-05-03 18:59:12 UTC  

That's cool af. What do you think it is? Main service? Those are fuse holders, right? I don't see stuff like that around here. I was born in a house built in 1820, but the town I grew up in, the oldest buildings were from the 50s

2018-05-03 19:06:28 UTC  

I wish I knew for sure, those are fuse holders for sure, it's on the 2nd floor, so I'm not sure if it's the main.

2018-05-03 19:09:12 UTC  

I didn't have a lot of time to look at it, I had to run across town to help a lady out kind of last minute, it's Derby weekend so it's crazy around town right now.

2018-05-03 20:56:28 UTC  

@RevStench lol you always find the craziest stuff

2018-05-03 21:23:43 UTC  

Haha these old homes have really neat stuff in them.

2018-05-07 01:40:57 UTC  

I bet it was a box added for something cool like a shock therapy machine.

Electricity is based

2018-07-17 12:27:03 UTC  

I love it when a plan comes together

2018-07-17 12:37:42 UTC  

@Rogue How's it hanging, bro? Haven't heard from you in a minute

2018-07-17 13:50:21 UTC  

Hah cool pipe run

2018-07-17 14:21:58 UTC  

@John O - Just hustlin' 😎

2018-07-17 14:22:03 UTC

2018-07-17 14:42:52 UTC  

Fuuuuck, I wish I had a scissor lift

2018-07-17 16:36:34 UTC

2018-07-17 19:12:03 UTC  

The final straw that makes me go Union

2018-07-17 23:52:44 UTC

2018-07-17 23:53:41 UTC  

Dude, I still want you to explain what the hell is going on with that

2018-07-17 23:55:18 UTC

2018-07-17 23:55:55 UTC  

"max power point tracker" it's the most efficient solar controller type

2018-07-17 23:56:26 UTC  

Measures the charge of the batteries and lets the right amount of charge from the panels into the batteries
