Well it's hopefully getting inspected tomorrow. I didn't throw a guy on but am prepared to if the inspector wants it. Theres a few newer looking services around this house and none of them have a guy either. You're right though, the pcco wants a guy over 2 feet. I've seen some that are like 5 feet above the roof without a guy which looks ridiculous. I have no idea how those pass.

We put a rope through the wedge clamp and then tied it off around a chimney. The drop was probably 60 or so. It wasnt super heavy, but it took the both of us to pull it enough to attach it to the poa on the mast.

My buddy did a house in Southside in Pgh. The inspector (city) said he had a few grounding issues,: "Let's talk over lunch. You buy." Inspector dude was gone next day.

Haha that's one way to do it I guess. I had my first experience with a city inspector 2 weeks ago. He still hasn't made a decision on if the service I did should pass or not. Getting a hold of those guys is nearly impossible too.

Look up bonding jumper. 250.50

Anything (building steel, piping, rods, ufer) can be jumped
