    I know of no jurisdiction that would allow this much SE cable within a building. I would start with the following violation followed by the lack of an OCPD where they enter the building.

    My guess is that if they're going to ask about a few specific code Articles I would look at Articles 230-Services, 250-Grounding and Bonding, and 695-Firepumps.

    Yes, those are the actual words of that section but certainly it would make sense to allow short sections of RMC or IMC to protect other wiring methods. For whatever reason the NEC hasn't made that...

    Those are breaker locks used to keep someone from inadvertently shutting off the CB. They're required on certain circuits like those in 700.12(F)(2)Exception, et al.

    In some scenarios the main bonding jumper is only required to be 12.5% of the phase conductors. Certainly the current for a neutral conductor connected to the EGC bus could exceed 12.5%.

    Simple fact is that it's not required to be GFCI protected. Any inspector saying that it is required is making up his own code unless there is a local amendment.

    I would guess that the problem starts with the cheapo builder grade fan. The fan in my bathroom was a higher end Nutone and it still lasted only about 9 years.

    Is such a high tech solution like a snake camera really needed? A simple properly sized mandrel would do the trick.
