Obviously your response is directed at me. No reason to be upset. Sorry if you are upset and disagree.
I read the 1st post again, by Inspector Dogoda. There is still no reference to GFCI. It’s clear that 3 outlets had no power.
I stand with my response to his question. Pay nothing. He found and reported. He recommended an electrician. All within the SOP. He is not required to do anything else. And suggesting that he should because he will not get another job is completely wrong and bad advise.
I’ll make up a little more crap for you. I have seen hundred’s if not thousands of structural fires. Majority of those structure fires were caused by electrical distribution or lighting equipment(aka-outlet or receptacle, branch circuit wiring, extension cords, fuse or circuit breaker). I made that up, but you can verify that info with NFPA.
Here is some more made up crap on electrical.
Electrical Fires rank 4th for overall cause of home fires.
Fire Deaths, in Home Structures Electrical Fires, is 12% and ranks 4th cause of death.
OSHA definition of a “Qualified Person”. One who has received training in and has demonstrated skills and knowledge in the construction and operation of electrical equipment and installations and the hazards involved.
As far as evaluating other inspector reports. Maybe you should quit inspecting and join the Mike Holmes show, you can do all the Monday morning quarterbacking you like.
Dogoda did the right thing.
