I had a neighbor call me one afternoon for help figuring why his well wasn't doing "right". End of story first, there was one leg of the buried 240 line that had shorted to ground.

After I checked the obvious things, fuses, control box, etc., I noticed a freshly dug hole in the yard. On asking about it they told me their dog had been digging there for several days. They would scold him and fill the hole in, only to have him dig it up again. Turns out that's where the break in the line was, making noise or whatever that only the dog could hear. He was simply trying to find it. It was buried about three feet deep and the dog had only got about half way there. After calling an electrician with the right tools to locate things he found the problem in just a few minutes.

If you ever get called to troubleshoot parking lot site lighting the first thing you do is look for the tree with the paper wrap. Thats the new one where the landscapers auger tore up the PVC pipe. Attach to to truck and pull it out dig there and fix tore up wire. Call landscaper to put his tree back gently. That dog was a good electrician for troubleshootin' .
