Ontario ESA inspection question?


Hello all,

Just wondering if any Ontario folks have some experience with an ESA inspection? I'm having my bathroom reno electrical inspected that I've done myself. It's fairly straight forward. Had to run two new 15 amp circuits, and roughed in a handfull of devices/switches/etc. The majority of circuit is run in the attic which I'm not sure they'll even look at. So just curious what to expect?

Any things to watch out for they are particular about?
Will they want to see the attic work?
I really want to get on with the drywall this weekend, and would rather not fail if I can prevent it! :O)

More than one cable per staple is a common error.

There is nothing wrong with two cables under the same staple. Unless there is something specific to Ontario that says otherwise. There is nothing in the CEC that says this is unacceptable

I am told that is gets called out all the time. Best to try and avoid it.
The staples definitely need to be rated for two cables and you will likely be asked to prove it.
