Dryer outlet by bathtub

Reposted here in hope for a response. I am concerned about this dryer power supply, not to mention dryer blocking access to part of the tub. I am looking for a reference regarding this outlet location. Thank you in advance.


Since you are not going to site code anyway, call out your concerns.

Limited tub access sounds reasonable.

Your client gets to decide what he wants to do about.

You already mentioned the lack of a dryer vent.

This is an opportunity to educate your client.

That dryer receptacle is permitted by the NEC.

Thank you for the responses

No requirement is needed for the wash machine and dryer. However I do mention Gfci to the wash machine and explain the reasoning.

I also would not accept a inaccessible p trap for the wash machine.

We don’t care. The OP is not in Canada.

Don’t you have your own section?

Too bad you don’t Michael you could learn a lot much quicker.

There is nothing I want to learn from you.

What ever happened to having one of your so called students post here and tell us about you?

You mean the one that is missing everything under the son on Inspections. He is doing just great.:wink:

So you claim he is doing great because you didn’t teach him right?:roll::roll:

Missing everything under the sun but doing great?? I don’t want my inspector missing things. If they were I would not consider that doing great.

I think it was an attempt at humor. A very bad attempt.:shock:

That is correct. It is pretty bad when you hear this from one of the top Real Estate Agents.
Jim you missed the wink.

How is this different than the flush mounted washer boxes that are used everywhere?

The standpipe has a regular p trap with no cleanout. Most install a clean out on the stack. If a p trap is installed with a cleanout it needs to be accessible by means of a cover panel. I hope you can understand my technical jargon. LOL
