Can anyone tell me if you can have a standard plug in the bathtub.

Why not??

Receptacles must not be installed within, or directly over, a bathtub or shower stall.

No, you must use an underwater approved outlet at those locations. Same is true for toilets and jacuzzi’s. :smiley:

This plug is aproved for bathtubs:

Brian receivies one ataboy:D

Yes, but is it approved for 110 vac??? I think not!

That’s the type of plug I thought was in question.

You see Jae we both thought that…why? Because we’re old and we’re probly the only ones here who have even seen one!

Then why post this in the Electrical section?? Huh? Huh?..:stuck_out_tongue:

I saw a marketing thread posted in the Education section yesterday, so ya never know.

Hey Guys,

Good call Larry…You win the Prize…:slight_smile:

I’m not old–just very, very experienced.

Adam Obrien–can you tell us which type of plug you were referring to?

can you say, receptacle?:slight_smile:

A “receptacle” is not a “plug”–it’s what a “plug” goes into.

plug *n *1: STOPPER: (an obstructing mass) 2: a cake of tobacco 3: a poor worn-out horse 4: a lure with several hooks…

plug vb 1: to stop, make tight 2: HIT, SHOOT…

…now why would I assume it would be electrical???

Just wanted to get everyone thinking and making fun. This was a question from a electrical teacher to his class, they all said that you can’t do it and stated codes. The teacher then asked his class how they would fill the tub with water.:stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue:

Brian Winkle and I are now prepared to accept apologies–and kudos:p :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue: .

lol…I just might use that in my next class in SC…lol…Cute…I like it !

This was a valid question, and when considering the answer, the definitions support the answer as “NO”

It is a catchy question though, :mrgreen:
