I am having a friendly argument with my father (an inspector) who insists that a condensate removal pump shouldn’t be on the floor in the garage because, being electrically activated, can be an ignition source. Says it should be 18 inches off floor.
I asked him to provide citation of any authoritative governing body (local or adopted) or reasonably-argued article, etc. suggesting that such pumps can’t be installed on the ground or shouldn’t be.
My brief searches lead me to assume that such a note in an inspection report wouldn’t have any such backing. He suggests it is common sense.
