    Stick a pole or snake down it and see how deep it goes or if it takes a turn.It could have been
    a mounting hole some other item.

    There is not a lot of water pressure on the that joint, plus it only has water in it when
    taking a shower.

    Depending on the issue there are underground rated splice kits available that might fix the

    My non engineer thoughts.You can just remove the wall.The green struts are to hold the wall.

    1. Not code compliant. All the cables/wires must be in the same conduit or cable assembly.

    I'm a little rusty on my code on this, but because the workshop is a separate building, and

    blocks be bonde...

    Your 120 volt can't work with out neutral, something is hooked up somewhere.It can work but not

    The neutral has to be in the same conduit or cable as the hot wires.If he replaces to the wires

    Splice looks fine. Tape it back up.
