Question regarding code


"I likely have somebody who will pull a permit for me and double check the work before the official inspector comes to do the final sign off."
that's a different story then, with a much nicer ending. =o) it's odd that your city won't allow homeowners to diy. they do here. ?
sorry.

I find it almost comical that some of the very people replying to this thread, the ones who are usually concerned with not violating code are telling him how to do the job even though it is illegal for him to do so.

You find it almost comical that someone might put some colored tape on some wire? That's the only thing that I have read that is a suggested violation. Wow. As far as violations go, that one is about as far down the no-no list as it gets. It's neck in neck with using a 6-32 to mount a hall light.

so with proper PVC size, can I use AL SE? I don't plan to upgrade and am looking at which wire will be the most economical. 6-3 UFB (copper) is over 3 bucks a foot. Wondered if I should go with some sort of AL or THWN which appear to be cheaper.
