Re: Jan 1st 2018 weather you inspect pools or not!!!

This is why the client no longer gets the option to “opt out” of the P&S inspection with me. If I am REQUIRED to report on something, the client will be charged accordingly.

Re: Auxiliary Panel

The entire panel is wired wrong - that's really all that needs to be said.

Re: If you thought Federal Pacific panels are bad

Even if this were true, the panel in your picture is not one of the types that have ever had the purported issues you're referring to.

This looks like it has more to do with the installation of...

Re: Panel screws and ticker activates

That's exactly what I would expect - flash, explosion, etc. But it's pretty unlikely that the screw would be energized without tripping a breaker or creating a fire show.

Re: Panel screws and ticker activates

That is a completely inaccurate way to check for an energized cover or energized screws. Think about it - when you place that ticker on the sheathing of NMC, you get the same indication, however, you...

Re: No Electrician I know

I think you're missing the bigger picture.

"10AWG max capacity 30A" is only one rule of many.

There are "rules" that allow 10AWG to be used on circuits with an OCPD larger than 30A.

As Home...

Re: Split bus panel?

The pictures don't show much, but it does appear to be a split bus. Were you able to see where the conductors from the 60 Amp breaker landed? The panel label would have given you all the necessary...

Re: What do you call this type of wiring

If you don't like the name "knob & tube," you can use the more technical term "open air conductor" - at least until it's connected to the NMC.

Re: Ungrounded 3-prong outlets

The use of GFCI protection in lieu of no equipment ground is only permitted for replacement of receptacles on existing circuits where no equipment ground exists.

Based on your post, I would assume...

Re: Panel near water source

In this particular case, the working space requirements are not in compliance.

This is "code" for "my opinion matters more than anyone else's does."

You will not be in business long if you...

Re: Accepting Credit Cards

I've been using square for a few years now and couldn't imagine doing business without accepting credit cards. At least 1/3 of my clients pay by CC.

I don't charge extra for CC users as my fees...

Re: Sylvania Electric Panel

Despite the brand of the panel, the contamination within the panel will likely warrant replacement.

This is a sub panel and will not contain a "main" breaker.
