Default How else can you correct this ?

Ran into this during a rewire, my only goof is I ran one 20 amp ckt from panel for whirlpool, I added a cable from the vanity GFCI ckt for the heater, it was too late to run another HR for the heater

Unfortunately, I had to remove the access cover in order to retract the existing octagon box, the handy box was the smallest of smalls that would fit in there easily.

I would have screwed a box with a bracket to the inside lip of the access door.

Where's the GFCI protection? I know it's not a mwbc, but did you use handle ties at the panel? May not be required, but I think I would do it.

I took the existing opening a foot away from the tub and turned it into a HR and deadfront for the motor, I have two GE slims next to each other with tie.

Tie the GFCI circuit into the main breaker lugs (100 amp or more) so the blow dryer and jacuzzi heater will never trip. Finished. Cash the check asap just in case. Do not sign anything either.

That's pretty much what the last guy did except for using a 30 amp breaker on 12/2 BX and a GFCI at the panel for protection.

This is Long Island style remodeling where the contractor hires a $200 a day laid off union employee as his electrician, How do I know this ? Schotchlok wirenuts, 5" boxes with mud rings , 12/2 BX and romex . Minimum code is 14 romex and plastic boxes in that jurisdiction, only ignorance would drive someone to use all that stuff.
