Temporary Wiring for Construction - per Section 305, National Electrical Code:

This section requires that:

  • Wires shall be properly fused
  • 15 or 20 ampere, 120V receptacle outlets used for construction shall be protected with a ground fault interrupted
  • All branch circuits originate from an approved distribution cabinet

The practice of connecting onto 60 ampere fuses in the temporary wiring for construction with a piece of 15 or 20 ampere wire and placing a receptacle on the other end is VERY dangerous and almost NO protection for the user of hand tools.

When the above condition is found by the Inspector, notice shall be given and upon re-inspection, if the condition has NOT been corrected, the temporary service shall be ordered removed by the Power Company.

Electrical Wiring for Swimming Pools - Sections 680-6(a)&(b); 680-10; 680-20-22; 680-25, National Electric Code:

These sections pertain to the bonding, lighting, receptacles, underground wiring and wet niche lighting.
