Had a home inspection done this week and when inspector removed the "faceplate" of fuse box, there was water sitting in bottom of box. ??? Also some rust on some of the screws. How does water get into a fuse box? He looked outside and wondered if it was traveling down the outside of the wire, into some cracked sealant around meter. Granted we've had many days of rain, but still seems quite a distance to travel. By the looks of rust, this has happened before.
Aside from having a licensed electrician check it out asap, does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions. Most people don't ever "look" behind the faceplate of fuse (circuit) box. Aside from
opening the door and flipping some on or off, if need be, I didn't know that faceplate even came off.
Is this gonna be expensive to "fix" and prevent from happening again? :(
