A by-pass device, adapted to be connected between lengths of cable through which fluid is being passed and electric current is being conducted, and a piece of electrical equipment through which the electric current is to be conducted, which permits the fluid being conveyed to by-pass the piece of electrical equipment includes: a first member and a second member, each of the members being fittings composed of an electricity-and-fluid passage section adapted to be connected to a cable; an electricity passage section adapted to be connected to a piece of electrical equipment; and a fluid conveying section adapted to convey fluid in a divergent path away from the current of electricity; and a conduit connecting each of the fluid conveying sections so as to permit the fluid flow between the fluid conveying sections of each member to by-pass the electrical device without interrupting the circuit of electric current. A method for flushing cables connected to electrical equipment with fluid in a manner which permits the fluid passing through the cables to by-pass the electrical apparatus while permitting the electricity conducted by the cable to pass into and through the electrical equipment in an uninterrupted fashion throughout a cable system.
