I realize that there should be a clearence of 30" on the sides and 36" to the front but I am not sure how that reflects water mains. I advised my client to get a second opinion from a licensed electrician to determine if this is a safe practice.
Yes, Dennis. I’m sure you will be the first to reply. I’ll be waiting.
