Aluminum Hydroxide and copper Sulfate are both insulators. When moisture comes into contact with aluminum or copper, this oxide forms. What was a low impedance fault can become a very large resistance. This resistance allows a leakage path to earth, and a low voltage can result on the line because current is going to ground. See arrow in above picture.

Proof testing each direction on the wire or cable can also be done once the fault is exposed. If additional faults are present, these can be located while on site.
