15 amp vs 20 amp


Hi guys. Just signing in from a long day in the field. As i was rendering service in the work field on a service install.. all the notes from the prior topics was very insightful. I took the liberty to noticing a quote few violations as i thought they were....until merging with an electrical engineer, inspector; clarity was brought to my intention as both agreed.. NEC is always followed- still exceptions are allowed in the field

..... as long as its not a safety violation, conflicting ones well being,it allowed even by NEC, for the reason it is acceptable..accepted to be enforced by the city inspection office. As long as it in accordance..it still meets code.

That what said; not saying to apply you just break the law are bend the rules together by ignoring when to govern, when to allow with the exception!

I have absolutely no idea what you are saying. You must follow the codes adopted by the AHJ. Whether its the NEC, or if there have been amendments adopted, you must follow them. You cannot simply ignore the rules because it isn't a safety concern in your, or an engineer's mind.

Excuse those typos also..please. misspelled some words there. On my cell viewing..couldn't edit!

Also noticed allot of disagreements for we sometime have the intensity to misinterpret each others words too. Prime example illustrated.

I mean no disrespect with this question, but it may help clear up some confusion...

Is English your first language?

What are you talking about? Maybe your earlier post was in the wrong thread? OP was asking about 15 amp and 20 amp breakers. I'm confused as to where your trying to go with these comments?
