It was passed by the AHJ so why should anyone be concerned?

Just want to hear what people have to say about this type of installation.

Installation over the sink is no good. This smells like a mobile home?

Is it GFCI protected?

Stupidity?


I'd also wonder if that was originally either just a switch and the receptacle was added (does the receptacle have a true neutral?) or if that was originally just a receptacle and the switch was added (what is the switch for and is the neutral / switch leg / etc. right?).

Ryan, no GFCI here, and Jerry you hit the problem on the head, sharp comment.


I think that the NEC may have something added to the code that will not require the receptacle to be in this area, I am not sure if it restricts this type of installation.

Maybe someone can research that for us.

I am stuck in a hotel room teaching a class of 2 people!

Got to eat and keep working, although I enjoyed it better when I was working on my Harley and old Model A!

The receptacle is not required THERE, just within 3’ of the edge of the sink.


It is only PROHIBITED to be face up in the countertop.

Jerry:


That's right.

I should have identified the new rule I mentioned is in the kitchen area.

You pointed out the current requirements for dwelling unit bathrooms, and they can be considered by a Home Inspector too.

The new rule for kitchens is about corner sinks and the the walls at the triangular space behind the sink.


No receptacle is required there if the space is over (I forgot already, either 12" or 18") between the sink and the wall, plus, there are some other measurements involved too). I have the drawing someplace, but I can't find it right now.
