Curious thing here.... I was written up under 110.11 once for doing this..
Another curious thing,
I'm reading in the 2002 NEC Handbook in the commentary below 210.52(D),(bottom of page 91) It states:
"See 410.57(D), which prohibits installation of a receptacle inside bathtub & shower spaces."
Where the devil is 410.57????
This codebook goes from 410.54 & jumps to 410.64! I'd think it would be referring to 410.4(D), but nothing regarding receptacles is mentioned here! Anyone have any ideas?
BTW, this outlet pictured was added by an electrician for the original builder as a "side job" after the fact. It's within 3' of the bathtub/shower also.. But my original understanding was this outlet was not allowed to be "below" the counter where if the sink overflowed, it could become wet.
