Thanks for the kind words!!!
I lurk here more than I post. I also have posted what I think is info to help the HIs. I myself am an inspector, instructor and an electrical industry advocate. I did not post this to ridicule anyone. I have noticed (I am sure that many of the threads started are about double tapping) that there seems to be much concern about this topic. I posted my comment to help those who read this forum to understand that double tapping may not be a problem.
I have also read in this forum some of the disgust that HI inspectors feel from the disrespect they receive in the real world. If there was a way (and there is through this forum) to help the HIs get more respect, it would be to be more consistant and more careful in how they report to their clients what may be an electrical issue. This way when the electrician (and all electricians are not good) reads the report, if properly written will show just from the wording that the HI is better educated than most electricians think they are.
For those who may want to spend the time to locate the info as to which circuit breakers are listed as suitable for more than one conductor, he/she can visit the particular manufacturer’s website and research which circuit breakers are suitable.
Maybe your organization can put together a list of the different circuit breakers that are listed as suitable… that would be a valuable page for your members to use.
I will even extend my help to your organization to help put together some info for yourselves to be able to document as to what I think would be an asset to produce for members. You could prepare it as a PDF download so the members can carry it with them during inspections or use it back at the office before producing the final report.
