Re: H/E Rusting

Ontario Electrical Code Question

I'm hoping some one with a full copy of the code can answer this question. Is there a regulation as to how much sheathing can protrude into the panel? If there is, the wording would be appreciated.

Re: Flooding Shower Pans

So let's say you flood a shower pan, leave it for a couple of hours, and your IR camera shows a leak.

Flooding Shower Pans

ABS Pipe

I found this 2" ABS pipe sticking out of the basement floor on a one year warranty inspection in Milton. Does anyone know what it is?
My only thought is possibly future radon mitigation.

Re: AC Current Switch

Interesting. I've done many condo townhouses and never seen one before.

AC Current Switch

Re: Sump Pump

The house and pump were only a year old. I wrote it up as "not tested/not accessible".
