I only get to inspect service entrances. I only do them if I have time, so I average about 2 a week.

MJ, how do you do it? There must not be any paperwork involved with your inspections. The forms I fill out take 10 minutes. Not to mention drive time (very rural, up to 45 minutes one way).


Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

Oh well...the "Boss" wants 15 in 8 hrs.
Sometimes??? you get 12, once got 18, maximum the computer allows is 15 (Girls "add" sometimes, or the "chosen ones" get spec treatment)
Chief says "quality vs Quantity"....
I usually do what they give me...
Depends on what you have to inspect...
Resi HVAC units, resi services, resi McMansions (rough/final) the big house on the hill (14000 SF) the 100K+SF warehouse/office/plant, a resi furnace replacement, an in ground pool (trench/bond/rough/final), gas station, cell towers, gensets, 4000 amp services, burg/fire alarms, and a any other possible thing you can think of.

Then, go back to the office, do the paperwork, file the tech cards, do the Cut-In cards, answer the phone, price permits, pull the tech cards for the next day, and do plan review.

Thank God I only work two 8 hour days a week
QUALITY!

Love it...
John

MJ,

Cool. Can I work for you? [Linked Image]

Around here, I have to give some guidance to the installer (non-electrician) although I won't tell them how to do something I will suggest a couple of ways that it should be done. You could end up with some spare ventilation holes in your body if you're not careful.

Tom
