    That's not even a coupling, it's the bell end of the conduit. I know of no rule about which way to turn it.
    If we have to piece/extend a riser or mast, the shorter piece has to go to the top. I...

    I don't think it was for vibration else they would have required them for a 10' away install. I think the locking feature was due to the exception of allowing the recep closer than 10' so you...

    I don't know what code cycle you are under but the 2017 (maybe earlier) changed. 680.22(A)(1) used to say the pumps had to be 10' from the pool but could be not less than 5' if certain conditions...

    It's not a "temp service". That get's replaced by the permanent service when you receive a "service release". As I said earlier, the "service release" just allows the POCO to energizes the service...

    Max Breaker

    After roughing in a new house and before final, we customarily get what is called a "service release". This is just an inspection with a few circuits connected to allow the POCO to connect power....

    You said it tripped on AF. If that's true then a bare ground to neutral shouldn't be the cause. But I know nothing about how the breakers differentiate between a GF and AF. I suppose it could give a...

    I can only suggest you get a labor unit pricing book, hopefully with material prices. Do a take-off and figure from there with your OH, profit, etc.

    I never put smoke alarms on a dedicated circuit. Usually it's on with a bedroom or lighting circuit. There is no rule either way (unless local amendment) but it would be easy for someone to turn the...

    It is on reels, but IMO is flexible. It is corrugated and flexes through turns in trenches with ease. It looks like gutter drain/run-off pipe. Or a huge black "Smurf Tube":)

    Thanks!

    If it makes you feel better, separate the ground and neutral into separate holes. But I'm 100% certain it won't change a thing.
