Hot Neutral Reverse


Sorry it took so long for me to respond. I've been really busy on the house and haven't been on te forum in a while. I did get a better tester and as many Of you pointed out all the outlets tested correct. It amazes me because even the home inspector said some where reversed. But I guess you really can't trust those inexpensive testers. Thanks for all the great info!

"False negatives".
A false positive would be where a bad outlet tested good and that is less desirable in this case than a false negative.
