Yes, opposite side.
Something just didn't seam right about placing a box in a wall which one side of the wall will be drenched with water... but thinking about it, guess its no different then an exterior wall.
Isn't there a 6" spacing rule when running piping and wire together ?
Like if you need to get your home runs down the length of a basement and the water lines where on the same side ?
And also, no pipes above a panel ?
Maybe these are things which the local inspectors around here pre-fure, but are not really a code issue.
Just the other day i picked up a GE sub-pannel. I was telling a friend who has been in the field for around 8 years (he has helped me alot and i dont like tonag him with questions
) and he the inspector would want the main pannel and sub-pannel to be the same brand (or i would have to use some kind of breaker in the main panel which Murry and GE likes ??? ). I thought that was odd... so i returned the pannel (HD) and then had to go to the local supply house to find a Murry pannel... i told the guy there the scoop and he said it dont matter, then i said i was gonna get it inspected and he said ohh... and sent me off to Lowes cause they only had 20/40 Murray panels in stock.
Guess its not so much the code all the time, but how the inspectors what to run the show ?
