Sounds simple enough. The side of the basement where the breaker box is is unfinished, so I can see the wires. I'm sure that will help quite a bit. I should be able to find which are the supply pretty easily.

@Edwin, I was reading this article on This Old House that talked about that. Which was interesting. I got my multimeter and set it to VAC, stuck the red in the short prong hole and touched the screw. On one outlet I got a reading of around 50, on another I got a reading of 1 or 2. Are they both grounded?

comment Replacing battery in backup sump pump
@Ecnerwal, bought the house 3 years ago and the system was already in place. To test the battery, I unplugged the system and pushed the "test" button which runs the pump. The charge indicator on the unit went from 100% to 25% immediately.

comment Live wires everywhere?
My stud finder has a live wire detector. I've noticed that the live wire detector often goes off on textured walls in places where I know that there are no wires. Is the wall textured?
