Electrical Servicing


a) What electrical service is typically supplied to apartment buildings? My city has 5 story apartment buildings. For instance 120/240 3 phase, 120/208 3 phase?


b) Following NEC standards, is GFI required in dishwasher appliance? How about in a sump pump and clothes washer?

Test writer must be a rank amateur. He/she should be stoned, flogged, drawn & quartered, put on the rack, rung, burned at the stake then stood in front of a firing squad.

Re: Electrical Servicing


Your trade says MEP, what is your background, what do you do?
Answer honestly and you may lose some of the sarcasm.

Re: Electrical Servicing


If this is an actual question, it was written so poorly and ambiguously that a correct answer may be considered incorrect, and vice-versa.

Ask the person who's administering the test for clarification.

Re: Electrical Servicing


You asked what I would do.

I told you what I would do.

And why.


FYI, most forums' software don't have the ability to delete accounts.
