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.

Pvc is not waterproof just water resistant. Water is a solvent and will eventually penetrate the cable.

The grey sheath is the cab;es mech protection, but I get your drift.

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 .

Yes your right .I should of said the cable is not suitable for the environment

It looks like the duct was full of water as it comes out underneath a jet wash bay with a grid floor so a bit of a poor design all round

Glad hotels are taking electrical safety seriously. I particularly like the bit of red wire jammed in the L and N to stop it being used, Extra safe.IMG_0195[20719].jpg
