Following guidelines set by the NEC, OSHA and NESC is the
number one thing that Electricians can do to prevent injury
and death.
All electrical installs or repairs that occur in an outdoor or potentially damp
location, even those made within a waterproof enclosure, must use a waterproof connector that is UL Listed for the application (ie: UL 486D).
