This cable could have been damaged before the high pressure water hit it but who’s to say, but in all likelihood it was’nt.

It is recommenced that when working around primary and secondary electric cables that your pressure is at 1500 PSI and your water temperature is at 70 degrees. Any higher pressure and hotter temperatures will rip open the outer coating of both in a matter of seconds.
