Quick question

When we come across a non-GFCI outlet near a water source should we recommend upgrading as a safety precaution or should we add it to the repair/replace catagory ??

What is the accepted practice for citing this issue??

Many Thanks…

#1 I assume that you live in Vermont…

#2 What does your client want to know?

#3 what does your contract say?

Does your (unknown)state have a HI law?

What does the code dictate for the age of the house.

There is no requirement for any homeowner to upgrade an old house (or any house) to todays standard (code)> not that we have any say so about code interpretation.

I have an “Informational” button I click for items like this if it wasn’t required when the Shaq was built, or someone forgot to install a GFCI.

Regardless, I recommend upgrading to a GFCI for safety reasons, today’s electrical standards, and put it in the Summary as well, in Red Text.

We have a good BINGO !!! That is what I do as well.:cool:


Dale, I’ve seen your report. You really need to re-do that HG red ink summary…:mrgreen:

Now, thats funny!

You bastard Steve----:lol:

You been browsing that Trailer Park website again?-----:stuck_out_tongue:

Dale, I swear that I inspected that 2nd trailer from the top. Nothing like a few metal sided mobile homes / meth labs to keep the money coming in. I find em, the fire department pays my finders fee and then burns em…

Woo Hoo. I’m on my 3rd bag of marshmallows… :mrgreen:

On this and any thing reguarding safety I always RECOMEND up grading, and yes I too put it in red.

That is really funny Stephen. LMAO.

Now that ther story dun brung a teer to m’ eye on accounta it recollected me of m’ days when I wuz jes’ a youth at m’ home…


Bye the way–that’s picture of my sister up there…:roll:
