Default Power Line Water Problem

Hi,
My husband and I have discovered we have water leaking into our basement from the main power line the runs into our house . Is there an easy way to fix this? I've read some information on line about Drip Loops and Weather Heads, what are these and how easy are these to install?
Thanks!

There's not much we can recommend without seeing what you have.
Is this power line entering the house after the meter or before?
Does it run directly into a breaker panel?
Is it enclosed in conduit or exposed where and after it enters the home?
Outside the home, does the power line run underground to a tranformer box, up to a meter or an overhead connection?
There are too many variables for us to guess why it's leaking.
