Sometimes violations are hard to find, and some times you just start laughing as soon as you open the door.....

I'll post some more pics of this job when I get more time.

Wow: two posts in under two minutes!!!

I'll have to show you the rest...you'll die. Nuetrals on hots, hots on nuetrals, bonding on the load side ( A real fire hazard in this case...think about it), Schedule 40 lateral riser, no bonds on metal raceway with GEC, etc...

Heres the best part...they used a bond bushing on the panel. What exactly are tehy bonding here...the locknut?

I'll hopefully get some more up tonight or tommorrow.

They bond conduit that doesn't exist, and they nail-plate individual conductors that shouldn't be there to begin with, this all seems just a little bit backwards....

Ryan_J,

What do you mean by "bonding on the load side"?

Cool!
Certainly did the wrong thing in a very right way.

Please tell us this was not installed by an electrician. Jeez, I am really perplexed as to how this kind of installation can really be done. It is a sad state of how things are if that is a licensed electrician's work.

Pierre,If you'd come to my part of Ga. I could show you lots of stuff like this done by "Licensed" electricians.

If I can figure out how to work this new digital camera,I'll send Bill some pics.
