    Thanks Pete but there were a whole lot of people who are responsible for getting this thing up and running including the web site committee and the entire R.E.C.I. board.  They are the ones who saw the real need for an updated wed site and a code forum.  They all deserve your gratitude as well.  Keep coming back.  Tony

    On inspections based on the 2006 Property Maintence Code, If a kitchen or bathroom circuit will you accept gfci protection with no ground conductors present?

    I don't beleive that the property maintenace code says that it must be grounded, it even says under laundrys that it must be grounded OR have GFI protection. For bathrooms it says that you must have at least one receptacle and any new must be GFI protected. It does not say that they must be grounded.

    We know that if a new circuit is installed it must be grounded. For existing if we go to 406.3 D Replacements it says that if an equipment grounding conductort is present we MUST use it. 406.3D3 says that if no equipment ground is present we can install a GFI with a sticker saying no equipment ground present.

    With that being said I would alow them to do just that.

    Thanks for the reply Steve and also making sure you included a code reference.  The MPMC is based on the MRC.  If the proper code reference is not in the MRC the MRC defers to the MEC which is the NEC adopted by the State of

    Michigan .  It can be confusing to some but as you know all codes are under the uniform Michigan Code.  This was done to keep municipalities from enforcing codes that didn’t exist.  While I would like to see a single electrical code in the state I guess we’ll have to hop around a bit sometimes to find the right answer.  Regards……Tony

    Does a home garage need a main if you install a 8 circuit MLO panel?
