I am having my shower redone, and the electrician installed an eyeball light above it because the ceiling is sloped. I questioned whether it was rated for damp locations. He said it was not because it is on a sloped ceiling. He also said it did not need to be because code only requires it within 6 feet of the shower head. I measured after he left and it was less than 6, and I found damp location slope lights online. This fixture is not on a gfci. This is in the Pittsburgh pa area. What should I do? Thank you.
