So Im in the process of purchasing a home and the reason I signed up here.
There seems to be a safety hazard as I noticed a cut ( possible lawn mower accident )plastic black PVC type flexible pipe with 4 wires inside.
The pipe or tube, goes from the main house to the garage to supply electricity.
Before it goes inside the garage there is a post in the ground, where the ground wire attaches, and the other 3 are going to a breaker box in the garage.
The fourth wire is a very thin beige wire which looks like a phone line.
I called an electrician and he gave two options, either a waterproof junction box or run a new cable.
For a quick fix as I'm running on a set schedule and funds, I would like to use the junction box option, however safety is also a concern. To ensure proper insulation from water as it will be buried 18" underground, is there a glue we can pour into the box to ensure waterproofing. Thanks in advance.
