100 amp inspection.


Hello,
I just bought a 1910 home. Electrical box had to be moved due to rain water run off where it was mounted. The box is moved now. Only one 15 amp circut was installed. This circut has one outlet and one light on a pull chain.

I have a bunch of holes in the sides of the box from where the old wires were installed. I know these must be plugged before it will pass inspection. Do the empty slots in the front of the box where the old breakers were have to be filled too? I was thinking yes. Can I just put the unused breakers back in to fill the slots?

Thanks
Jeff (Wayne county Indiana)

Yes and yes. Fillers are also available for most panel covers.

Why in the world would anyone move a panel board without using a brand new one? You can get a 200 amp with main for just over $100.00.

200 amp box requires more expensive feed 1.79 foot vs 3.69 a foot. At least that is what was quoted to me. I still had to run a new 64feet of 4 wire.
