Devices for use with high voltage system components for the safe expulsion of conductive moisture within such components include elbow and T-shaped connector bodies composed of insulating elastomeric bodies covered with conductive elastomer layers. The horizontal legs include all components normally found in such components. The bore of the vertical leg provides a circuitous passage from the horizontal leg to a container or the soil for the collection of such moisture. The circuitous path prevents the moisture from leaving as a stream and the grounded metal cap at the vertical leg extremity discharges any charge carried by the moisture. The circuitous path can be provided by modules each having a curved, linear or combined path such that the total path is longer than the length of the vertical leg. A vacuum access port can provide a means to draw out the moisture if gravity is insufficient to withdraw the moisture from the high voltage system components.
