I believe this is an except from the 2020 NEC:
“Receptacles shall not be installed within a zone measured 900 mm (3 ft) horizontally and 2.5 m (8 ft) vertically from the top of the bathtub rim or shower stall threshold. The identified zone is all-encompassing and shall include the space directly over the tub or shower stall.”
Now I know we’re not code inspectors but this piqued my curiosity. I did some searching and wasn’t able to find a great answer. Now I understand this to be above the rim, say its below the rim of a bathtub, on a wall perpendicular to the bathtub, and within that 3 ft horizontally? This would be permitted by code?
Thanks for any insight ya’ll can help provide here.
