Today I built an *electrical service from hell *(see attached PIC).
Here is the problem: I’m not really an electrician. So I put text under each photo, but I’m sure the text isn’t technically correct. I just worded it the way I would explain it.
What I need is for you electrical inspectors, electricians, and code folks to scroll down the photos and give me this:
- The correct way to say it. I’m sure you can improve on the verbiage. Correct it for me by posting the right way to say it.
- The correct way to spell it. I don’t know if it is “knockout” or “knock-out” or if it is “AMP” or “amp.”
- Any side notes you would add such as “This problem is usually found when…” or “This issue can be easily corrected by…”
- Any references to actual codes such as the NEC that addresses the issue in the photo (I know it is a pain to look up).
I’ll take anything and everything you can post here on this message board.
To each person who contributes… I’ll ship a box of cool stuff from InspectorOutlet. The more you contribute, the bigger your box!
