Underground wire break?
The flourescent lights in my garage have started flipping on and off. I checked voltage and I am only getting between 80-95 volts while this is happening. At other times I am getting 105-118. We installed a new deck and I am concerned that the underground wire to the garage was damaged. Our electric bill has gone up 75% in the last year. Can the power be bleeding into the ground and how can I tell. We have one 40 amp 220 line running to the garage that is connected to a small breaker box.
How can I test the integrity of the 100' underground cable without digging it up.
