Home Inspector's Electrical Wall of Defects.
Electrical Wall of Defects
We asked Mr. David Ruskay, a master electrician, to build the Electrical Wall of Defects.
The wall has 50 electrical defects every inspector should know.
Throughout his career Ruskay has repaired electrical problems discovered by home inspectors.
Ruskay built the wall to demonstrate the most common electrical problems that are missed by home inspectors.
21 wall receptacles are purposely wired with defects that a GFCI tester falsely describes as "Correctly wired."
Receptacles are pulled out to show how they are improperly wired.
