Snapshots From The Field

Our inspectors are always coming across interesting finds in the field. Here’s one of the latest.

We’re all familiar with that age-old question, “What came first, the chicken or the egg?” This case is similar, only here, we’re left wondering, “Who installed first, the electrician or the plumber?”

Probably the electrician. Water and electricity never, ever mix and installing a toilet so close to an electrical panel presents a major fire hazard. While there doesn’t appear to be a sink or shower present in the space, even the small amount of water in the toilet bowl could be dangerous for anyone called on to inspect the electrical panel (it being in such close proximity as to necessitate leaning over it), or even anyone using the toilet in the event of a leak. We would advise removing the toilet to be on the safe side.
