That disconnect is for steam condensate pumps making all the plumbing at just below the temperature of live steam. Ouch! The electrician probably was there first and did his job to Code and then the plumbers did what they needed with no coordination. I've even had plumbers hang their pipe off my conduit supports.

Good gosh............. who was injured from these installations?

Some of these installations a person (inspector) needs to looks at 4th dimensionally. The original install by an EC was fine, but other trades (or possibly handymen) changed the landscape.

You must credit the creative use of brown phase tape for the undersink plumbing repair - quite the handyman...

Wondering what the Plumbing Codes say about that???

As a retired "OSHA Compliance Officer" and now and for the past 10+ years a private EH&S Consultant I fully understand, agree and have seen these types of installations / violations. Why do they occur? Well, when installed in this manner one immediately gets the service and nothing immediately happens...so I guess it's OK. It is that "nothing happened" that allows such installations to continue....until...well you know what usually does and can occur.

All of this feedback and violations have now been documented and are in the possession of EC&M. They can be used as indicators of insufficient electrical training, neglect or otherwise. I appreciate what follow up is done in an effort for these 10 violations to be passed along to the owners and corrected. All of these fire and electrocution hazards have the potential to hurt personnel and damage property. A printed answer would be a safety directive to the trade. Thank you!

Yep, we have all heard it: If it works, it must be right!

I see many comments laying blame on the plumbers, but I see it as lack of coordination on all parties (i.e., electrical/plumbing/GC). We as electricIans should be well rounded enough to have a general idea of project and be able to forsee things of this nature, address the issue and avoid a crappie installation like this.
