    I feel for you !!! When some women get ideas in their minds it's tough to un-convince them. She probably saw something similar in a magazine and wants that done at her house. There's nothing in...

    I believe the std. is approx a 5 mil trip for personal protection. I've used GFI breakers for commercial de-icing cable (Siemens I believe) that were set for a 30 mil trip. However, I haven't seen...

    With respect to what has already been mentioned, we don't know what type of generator was used and whether or not it had a voltage regulator. However, I've found that many service people who service...

    Correct Dennis, a std. A-bulb. Just curious, what problem would you anticipate with a CFL other than the back-light feature of the switch possibly not working correctly ?

    OK, here's the deal - I went back to finish up this project and used two different plug-in testers, both were made by Ideal. One used neon bulbs the other used LED's. When the neon tester was used...

    OK. Good point. I won't get back there until next week. I'll let you know what I find.

    This was last week so from what I remember (my short term memory is on the fritz) one lamp was lit solid and the other flickered as a neon bulb would when the switch was in the off position

    I really don't know for a fact that they work on A lamps only. I know some devices (like Intermatic timers - not the digital ones) are not reliable or will not read thru the xfmr inside a CFL. The...

    Not sure. I did some work at a residence recently and the HO purchased all the devices. I found this out while testing.
  11. Switched receptacles and back-lit Decora switches

    Is it acceptable to use back-lit (neon) switches to switch receptacles in a bedroom ? What ends up happening when you plug in a receptacle tester is one light lights solid and the other flickers as...

    Unless you're really hard up for work I'd run away as others have suggested. This looks like a bonifide Rube Goldberg and a customer that was looking to get out cheap & dirty. Any electrician worth...

    FWIW, I once had an inspector tell me that if I connected the # 8 solid to the cold water line under the tub that the clamp had to be accessable for servicing. Not sure if it's that explicit in the...

    So far you've gotten 2 pieces of the best advice you'll ever get. This is one of those "Lets run it up the flag pole and see if it flies" situations. No matter what you do you're not going to come...

    I agree. If moving is not an option then now is the time to specialize in an area within your trade (i.e. industrial wiring, PLC's, computer cabling, etc.).

    This is kind of sad. Material costs...

    I agree 100%. If all the subs bid on the same set of drawings the numbers are going to be reasonably close. It's when they leave out the FA system on the dwgs., like in your case, or they say "You...

    If they're 120V there must be a module somewhere that ties into the smoke alarm circuit. As you suspected, that is just a switch leg that probably triggers the module.

    I respect your opinion and your position is well taken. IMHO, if I had to do that much research in order to install a bath fan I'd just as soon not install it. I'm also not one to turn away work...
