Im going to try and pick up some of those sometime. Its been cold and warm around here, so its hard to find time to fix the issues.

Now I'm thinking a new well install needs to be fixed up...

As long as you enter the disco thru the wall and directly into the back of the enclosure, the NM isn't considered to be "outside" per se, since it isn't really exposed to the elements.

That is what I thought originally, but I had to double check.

maybe I misread but I thought you said it came in to the bottom of the disco. That would mean it was exposed.

If it comes in to the back, then you can generally get away with NM.

It is going into the bottom for two other discos, so I'm going to fix that problem by entering through the back. I also need to get thwn and put it through the liquid tight. The "electricians" used romex through the liquid tight and were the ones who put it through the bottom of the disco.
