Seal Tight/Connection Punchlist

Hi all,

I'm a bit stumped on this one. I'm not an electrician and working on a punchout for a job I've inherited. The comment made on this particular item is that the seal tight is not necessary for a proper installation and is not even connected properly. I think it's been connected properly and have no issue in regards to compliance with code. Thoughts?

Well, there's a liquid-tight fitting, with liquid-tight flex, terminating into box rated for dry locations.

That might be what they are referring to.

And if you zoom in, the flex is attached to a piece of emt. I’m thinking they needed a section of flexible conduit and all they had was liquitight.

Re: Seal Tight/Connection Punchlist

Is it LT with the metal core or PVC through?

If it is the second, you need a ground wire.

That would be what I'd check first.... whether the flex is approved for grounding and whether there's a ground wire if it isn't.

It looks like there's a gasket on the 90, so I'd say it's not an approved ground path.
