Motor lug # 1 and # 2 shows a pool motor, where someone install an aluminum lug on it. Their answer to me was that the lug was UL listed or CU/AL! I also quoted to them that as per 680.26 (C) all parts must be "...stainless steel, brass,copper or copper alloy."
The next picture shows an inground pool motor wired with an extension cord with no connector. The pool was about 2 years old and we were supposed to do a "clean up" final inspection. There was also an indoor surge suppressor plug strip laying right next to the pool and the children were playing in the pool. The cords all went back to an extension cord that was draped over the house and was plugged into a receptacle in the back yard. I couldn't get a picture of it because the babysitter asked me to leave. I told her to remove the children from the pool before someone got hurt.
now that is the disator is waiting for happending anytime
harold did you try to get ahold of the homeowner beside the babysitter try to scoot you out?? i will concat the homeowner about the sisuation asap.
i can see about first two motors but one thing it do bother me is what size the wireing on for motor grounding there ?? i know it should be #8 and if i rember the rules right [ correct me if i am wrong here] it should not have any splices at lug connectors at all and the wire have to be concouns with out splice along the way.
third photo show no ground wire for pump motor at all and i think this is very dangerous pratice myself i did see few pool and few hot tubs do the same ways and i am not comfotable with it. and do this system is procted with GFCI devices ??
Merci , Marc

Yes I did get to go back and told the homeowner to get rid of that crap before someone got killed. They removed most of the old stuff and told me that would call me back for a final inspection real soon. That was about 3 weeks ago. HMM!? You think that maybe they forgot to call me back? Maybe they have closed off the pool till next year.
