Inspector is mistaken, they are on two circuits. Use two single poles with a tie.

What's the difference.?
Since the inspector is an jackass, now he would actually have two separate breakers without a common internal trip.

no, the homeowner just told me what he said. I haven't seen the actual inspection report yet.

appliance ratings, don't know, don't think I have ever checked. I always run a 14/3 for the dish/disposal
Why oh why do you allow the inspector in your customers home so he can destroy your reputation in front of the customer?:blink:

You should always walk through with the inspector and make sure he does not fail you in front of the client, who will then turn around and write a review with the phrase " He failed inspection because of incompantance."

Charge for the time in your quotes and never let that happen.

I would say you have some high dollar quotes if you can wait around all day for the inspector.

It's a 2 hour window, anything else is unexceptable.
4 hour window here, am or pm. I prefer to charge for it in the proposal, then try to arrange the inspection when the homeowner or contractor will be there.
I would have been there if i thought for a second there could be an issue.

I seriously doubt my reputation with the homeowner is in jeopardy when he reinspects and nothing has changed

I've installed 12-3 under sinks for years , because we never get appliance specs here.

Our AHJ's have only made it an issue with the upcoming (July?) 2014, when we'll be running 12-4 instead
