    Brass outlet cover is 1/16″ thick and sits flush on top of outlet box. With cover on outlet box the distance from pvc rim to top of cover is 1/2″. Seems like I have to lower outlet box flush with pvc. Not sure how to do that. Not sure I can cut out outlet box and replace without destroying pvc. If I cut 1/2 ” off the outlet box I lose the 3 screw holes that hold the brass cover. I don’t have an electrician I talk to. Guess I need to try to find one if you haven’t come across this problem
