  1. Did you miss the part of the post about CSST as part of the LP distribution? Do you know the requirements for bonding NG/LP piping systems when CSST is present? It seems that you're the one that's "NOT CORRECT" - once again. Until the 2009 IRC and 2008 NEC, any gas system, even with CSST gas pipe, was considered 'bonded' providing at least 1 appliance was connected with at least a 20amp circuit with a 12AWG equipment grounding conductor. The following is taken from the 2000 through 2006 IRC and is also stated in the 1999 through 2005 NEC: Only since the 2009 IRC and 2008 NEC
  2. According to the 2008 NEC (Upon which current NY State Electrical Code is based) the only thing required is for metal water distribution pipe to be bonded in a single location...anywhere on the system. So you are NOT CORRECT in assuming that "there should be bonding jumpers at each of these apparatus..." since none have ever been required. Such a 'bonding jumper' connection is only required when the water service pipe is at least 20ft of metal and therefore used as a grounding electrode....and only when the grounding electrode conductor needs to be connected within 5ft of the metal
  3. WRONG! CSST gas pipe is required to be 'bonded' from the gas pipe BEFORE IT ENTERS THE BUILDING to either the: ---Grounding Electrode ---Grounding Electrode Conductor ---Grounding Buss in the Panel Conductive WATER PIPE needs to be BONDED "anywhere" in the metallic water system. If you need "Code" quotes from the Fuel Gas and/or Electric Codes, just ask, and I will gladly supply them....
  4. Before the 2006 International Residential Code, no weather-resistive membrane was required behind most exterior wall covering (siding) materials. If one is not there, and you otherwise have no water infiltration problems, don't worry about it...
  5. Uh, Chad is an AHJ. Good show! But may be "an" AHJ, but Chad is not, nor can he be, his own AHJ or do inspections on his own work. Which brings me back to my original warning! [:-graduat
  6. I am enjoying this conversation a bit too much. If you were my AHJ or electrical inspector I'd direct your attention to the 6 gauge copper rope on the left of the panel. It feeds a sub with two lighting circuits and four bedroom circuits. In addition to the 38 circuits in the panel in the photo, are 8 circuits in a sub panel. I'd take a picture of it so you can sleep tonight but my wife painted the non-compliant cabinet door shut and I don't feel like messing with it this morning. Welcome to the board. If the AFCIs are protecting the required circuits in a subpanel, then there
  7. "Just the kitchen and bathroom circuits are new. Everything else was wired in 2010." At the very least then, all rewired bedroom circuits in 2010 would have required AFCI protection under the old 2005 (NFPA-70) NEC which was in effect in in NY through December 2010.... So you STILL need to install AFCIs on all your bedroom power, bedroom lighting, bedroom smoke detector and other circuits in your bedrooms to be code compliant.... Sorry.
  8. AFCIs are required for 'new circuits', even if in existing construction. The question is: was only the panel replaced? If so, then no AFCI breakers are required. If the house was rewired, (as it appears to have been) then all 'new circuits' require AFCI protection in compliance with NEC 210.12.
  9. Where are the required AFCI breakers? "210.12 Arc- Fault Circuit-Interrupter Protection. (A) Definition: Arc- Fault Circuit-Interrupter Protection (AFCI). A device intended to provide protection from the effects of arc faults by recognizing characteristics unique to arcing and by functioning to de-energize the circuit when an arc fault is detected. 2008 National Electrical code NFPA 70 210.12 requires the following areas to have arc fault protection: all 15 and 20 ampere branch circuits supplying outlets installed in dwelling units. - family room - dining rooms - living rooms - p
  10. Dryer vent nearby? If so it's probably lint. Very common with dryer vents that terminate near or on a roof.
  11. Baptistries, by International Building Code definition, are Swimming Pools , not plumbing fixtures. See section 3109 of the IBC: Pool heaters are regulated by electrical/mechanical codes. Drains and supplies are regulated by plumbing codes. Pumps, timers, wiring, bonding, overcurrent protection devices, switches etc... are regulated by electrical codes. At least under the International Plumbing Code, there is no requirement for the shut-off valve for water supplies to necessarily be located within the same room. Check your local commercial code office for applicable co
