    The lady is looking at the electrical box and says there is no way to tell if it is safe? It’s not like they hid the wiring in a concrete slab. It’s really easy to tell if it’s safe, find someone with a brain and have them look at it. Most adults can match up wire size with an appropriate circuit breaker. Most other electrical codes are also very simple.

    14ga = 15 Amps
    12ga = 20 Amps
    10ga = 30 Amps
    8ga = 40 Amps
    6ga = 50 Amps

    This stuff does not even involve math.

    There should be no joining of wires without an enclosing junction box. So, the wiring shown may or may not be safe, but it does not meet code.
