    Well 90% of the videos online are inaccurate-- Almost everyone I have seen on electrical was pretty bad. I don't worry about it. The diy vids are, IMO, dangerous as they can be really non compliant...

    The following is for fire pumps but I believe that is the only place that the NEC requires us to follow that rule. The other is guidelines in informational notes which are not enforceable

    I didn't say it wasn't-- it is compliant imo. I think what is not compliant, according to Tom Baker, is 2 sp breakers (different circuits) on a dp switch. It does not appear to be compliant but I...

    DP switches are used all the tiome for well pumps, sometimes water heaters (30 amp switch), discos for a multiwire branch circuit to a separate structure etc. As Trevor stated these are considered...

    Informational notes are not a code requirement. Although it is a good idea to prevent VD the NEC only requires us to be concerned about VD when it comes to fire pumps. It may be req. elsewhere but I...

    If that breaker is built into the equipment then you need a circuit that is large enough for both loads. Basically there would be 2 lugs for you to install your feeder /branch circuit--- I am not...

    I suspect there is a bad ballast somewhere that is causing this issue. Again why are these lights on a gfci. They don't seem to need that type of protection

    8/3 must be used with a 40 amp breaker not 50 amps as NM cable is only rated 60C. As long as the 6/3 nm has a ground then there should not be an issue with the install.
