You are missing my point. Yours is an alarming statement for no real reason, and it didn’t explain anything to the client. Just pointing that out to other inspectors that may be listening.
Yes it is alarming and that’s why I say it that way .
It is wrong and needs to be repaired now.
It needs to be fixed now by an electrician .
Some one can destroy a computer by trying to take this double tap apart .
Double tap neutrals can be worse then double tap hot wires .
Are you saying that you’ve known about this hazard before it was spelled out in the NEC? I doubt it, because just about every other electrician that installed panels in the 60’s thru the 90’s didn’t pay attention to the listing. I see this every day.
Regardless if you find it and do not write it You are wrong .
This is one electrician who did not install them thas way .
And I always wrote it up as a safety hazard needs to be repaired immediately.
That panel has existed with that conditions for probably decades and shows no evidence of any issues. To say immediately is definitely an over reaction. I had some in my panel for over a decade before being corrected, again with no issues. Immediately implied an imminent safety or life hazard which this clearly is not.
Why did you bother to correct them you say they worked ok
If you where inspecting a home how would you write this fault up .
did you read these two strings
Asked about neutrals and grounds sharing the same bar, an electrician told me that when the ground and neutral bar are bonded, then there’s no effective difference. Is there something he’s not taking into account?
As I understand it:
-One neutral per lug
-As many as three grounds under a lug (if panel specs allow), but they must all be the same gauge.
-Ground and neutral should not be under the same lug
Please feel free to correct me if these statements are incorrect.
