What Is This?

Post by npautler » Thu Aug 29, 2019 10:37 am

Anyone know what this item circled in my photo is? Appears to be a cover for something no longer used. We’re looking at cleaning this service/utility area up and removing some older cable and phone line equipment that are no longer being used (or have the utility company remove them). We built a little cedar fence around it to hide it. Pretty glaring eyesore.

Looks like an abandoned vent, such as for a dryer or bathroom exhaust. It also looks like there's a removable cover on it, pop it off and have a look inside.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

To me it looks like an old power meter socket.

Probably safe to remove that round cover to see what's behind it?

Yeah, I think you are correct Aaron.

I put up a 6’ cedar fence to hide all this stuff but this things still peaks over the top. (Still need to cut down a couple posts but need a new saw blade).
