  3. Yes, thank you for seeing that. The cable has to be spliced in the interior of the dwelling unit to a wiring method permitted in a wet location, then ran outside. Once the wiring method enters a wet location (at the siding) it has to be rated for a wet location. I do not write the NEC, but that is what is written.
  4. 680.21(A)(4) is clear, but it doesn't say what you want it to say. It simply saying that, in the interior of a dwelling, X is permitted. It doesn't say what's not permitted and it doesn't say what is or isn't permitted outside a dwelling. This section does not support your argument. Enough said. Because it doesn't contain any prohibition. - Jim Katen, Oregon Um "Dude", Let me get this right. You are stating that since the NEC doesn't read that "NM cable is prohibited" it is acceptable to install NM cable outside the dwelling unit to the disconnect. However, the NEC clear
  5. Yes Erik with a K, NOT LESS THAN therefore it needs to be 5' or MORE away from the hot tub. The link you posted above does not apply because this is a SFR and the answer in the link does not qualify SFR. Most of these jobs are with PVC and THWN pulled inside. I just did a job for my aunt like this 2 weeks ago. I pulled NM inside the house and from the exterior disco to the hot tub I pulled THWN, 6/3NM inside the house and #8 THWN outside the house and was able to maintain the 50A required rating.. NEC 110.14©(1)(a)(1) states; (a) Termination provisions of equipment for
  6. 680.21(A)(4) is specific and states; (4) One-Family Dwellings. In the interior of dwelling units, or in the interior of accessory buildings associated with a dwelling unit, any of the wiring methods recognized in Chapter 3 of this Code that comply with the provisions of this section shall be permitted. Where run in a cable assembly, the equipment grounding conductor shall be permitted to be uninsulated, but it shall be enclosed within the outer sheath of the cable assembly. 680.3 states; 680.3 Other Articles. Except as modified by this article, wiring and equipment in or ad
  7. I have no idea why you posted this very basic information, especially a month later, but let's get it right. The service equipment and service disconnect is in the meter room (first photo). The service size to the unit was what I was describing. Sorry for the late post. I just joined. If nobody is allowed to comment on older threads, maybe it should be posted somewhere. My apologies and Merry Christmas!!

  10. The is a clamp for copper tubing. To hell with 110.3(B) listing and labeling. I guess that you do not think that 334.30 is being met be this? Where does it say in 334.30 that the fitting must be listed? This cables are secured and it does not look like they are being damaged by this clamp. What part of Article 300 would this usage violate? 334.30 Securing and Supporting. Nonmetallic-sheathed cable shall be supported and secured by staples, cable ties, straps, hangers, or similar fittings designed and installed so as not to damage the cable, at intervals not exceeding 1.4 m (4
  11. Is that panel supplied by flexible cord?
  12. The service is in the meter room. The size of it is based on the main disconnect rating/service entrance conductor ampacity. The panel in the unit is a subpanel. Its ampacity is based on the size of the feeder breaker/conductor ampacity.

  14. I can't find the reference to "total load" but 310.15(B)(6) does state 3-wire feeds. I stand corrected although, for all practical purposes, it would seem the table should still be applicable (if everything was allowed). 310.15(B)(6) states; (6) 120/240-Volt, 3-Wire, Single-Phase Dwelling Services and Feeders. For individual dwelling units of onefamily, two-family, and multifamily dwellings, conductors, as listed in Table 310.15(B)(6), shall be permitted as 120/240-volt, 3-wire, single-phase service-entrance conductors, service-lateral conductors, and feeder conductors that s
  15. This doesn't make the double-tapped set-up right, but we are talking about service feeders here with regards to ratings and 310.15 (B)(6) would be the appropriate table.... #4 cu - 100-amps #3 cu - 110-amps #2 cu - 125-amps #1 cu - 150-amps I agree that two wires under a lug is a violation of 110.3(B). However, 310.15(B)(6) is only applicable when the conductor carries the total load of the dwelling unit. Therefore, my statement of ampacities still stands. My guess is that whoever did the initial install mis-applied 310.4 and compounded the mistake by applying 310.15(B)(6).
