The grey sheath is the cab;es mech protection, but I get your drift.Ok just to update I carried out an "insulation resistance test " across all cables and the lowest reading was between line and earth 545 meg at 500 volt so ok for now . Not sure what damage the water will do to the cable over time but just looks ruff to me .Thereis no mechanical protection where it leaves the conduit and goes into the duct. It's in one of those places that will probably be used as a store so a potential for the possible damage to the cable in the future.
Thanks westward . The circuits are on rcbos so I'm sure they will start tripping when the pvc breaks down . I will report my findings .Pvc is not waterproof just water resistant. Water is a solvent and will eventually penetrate the cable.
Yes your right .I should of said the cable is not suitable for the environmentThe grey sheath is the cab;es mech protection, but I get your drift.
The red wires are attached to the plug pins/back plate that is still inserted in the socket, the wires would normally be connected to the PCB of whatever cheap charger was there and has now parted into two pieces. If the socket is switched on the wires would become live. Surely it wouldn't have been difficult to pry the remains out of the socket, it would have taken less time than printing the sign!I particularly like the bit of red wire jammed in the L and N to stop it being used,
Not making me mad Mate, just wonder why people have to talk like rock stars rather than professional trades people.
sorry for my delay and seemingly random post.What does ?
and those faceplate screws are all over the place.Brand new install. This is what they did today. Rather than change the Tee to a elbow, even had a spare elbow, they just (badly) cut the trunking around the tee.240V cable in left trunking, 24V fire alarm on the right, both go up into the ceiling. Easy access from above.

Installed today. I would not have the cheek to leave it pi**ed like that. Only MDF, so no excuse.View attachment 59036
