After making a point of defining proper clearances, and being assured that no problems would arise, the customer called and wants this hooked up. 100A, 480V



What would you tell them?...S

How about if they told you:
"It's OK, we already have a final inspection, it won't be a problem"
(What kind of inspector would give them a final without the installation of a "full blast" boiler?).
A crummy one...And yes I'm mad, again...S

If the local inspector doesn't give a d@#$, maybe you could get OSHA interested. With that company's attitude, there might be some other "interesting" things around.
