Default Re: What would you say on your report?

I see a main panel below the meter and two "subs" The lugs from the first sub are double tapped to feed the second. They do not appear to be rated for two wires. I have no idea what "conduit" or "extension" have to do with this. The Double tap defects would be seen by any novice so there must be something else you want us to see.

This is because it is attached by a conduit so it cant be considered a (sub) but more like an extension if it were a sub panel then it could not be bonded with the main.
Wrong.

Wrong.

First, let me help you with something else;

NOW = At the present time or moment
KNOW = Be aware of through observation

You did not "KNOW" what you were looking at, as is apparent from your previous posts.

There's a fine line between simplification and inaccuracy. When you over-simplify, you become inaccurate.

You are correct Juan... Other than a double-tapped breaker, I see no other apparent issues.

Ok thanks Pope. I was waiting for some brilliant explanation from the OP on something most of us would overlook.

The correct answers were given in posts #9, 21 and 33. You were even on the right track when you posted a link to another thread regarding double taps.

I have no idea. I rarely ask questions to which I already know the answer.

You also said there was another problem that you would point out that you still have not done.

I already gave the appropriate report-comment, which is not only simple, it's accurate. Apparently you missed it.

If you want me to stop "attacking" you, then you need to reconsider your own manner.

You represent yourself as a "Master," a "Teacher" and the "President" of a Canadian Association. All of which would imply a much greater level of experience and education than you actually possess.

You compound this misrepresentation by making statements that are completely inaccurate (to the degree of negligence), and then when confronted with facts, you refuse to change your position.

You are not qualified to carry your self-appointed "credentials," but carry on if you wish to do so. Just don't expect me to sit back and allow you to discredit this profession by making unqualified, inaccurate and outright-false statements on this public forum.
