I could use some opinions on this inspection. Contractor is asked to provide power for an igniter for a "Fire Bowl" located on the coping of an in ground pool. The igniter is 24v. and my feeling is that even tho he bonds the metal parts, and provides GFCI protection for the xformer feeding the igniter he is not permitted to do this because of 680.22 (E). I think the "Fire Bowl" igniter will be within the 10' range. Hope this link work. www.grandeffectsinc.com if it doesn't, copy it into your browser and take a look at this produce. It is Listed (I think) but I haven't gotten any response to my email.
Tesla, I guess we could say that of all of the things that are not allowed in the 10' area of the pool. The potential for electrocution is unlikely but the tingle voltage could trigger problems around a pool and just like a phone or other items the 24v. associated with the Fire Bowl should not be permitted per the code.
The significant difference is the lifts are listed. If the fire pot maker has a listing for being next to the pool this is a done deal. I agree these things are not environmentally friendly but that is not what we do for a living.
