Funny you say that...I was walking around in a new home that was just wired the other day, and i noticed they were still pulling dead-end 3 ways. This was in a neighborhood of a tough inspector.And even though we were on the 99' code when I first started , they didn't begin enforcing it until like 2000 around here.
:laughing: I know, but some guys on here act like you can just go down to your nearest Wal-Mart and pick it up off the shelf.I haven't heard of anyone being called on it.
I try to avoid dead end 3 ways myself but sometimes one gets wired that way.
Want to see something funny? Walk into a supply house and ask for some 14/4 or 14/2/2.
They'll look at you like you have 2 heads.
I can get 14/2/2 at any supply house around here. In fact I do get it and use it. You can also get it online at Home DepotMHElectric said::laughing: I know, but some guys on here act like you can just go down to your nearest Wal-Mart and pick it up off the shelf.
I prefer to pull dead end 3 ways. But unless the inspectors dont enforce this code change, I'd rather just pass the inspection and not chance it.I started wiring mine so I have a neutral at each switch. I seen a house the other day that passed which has several dead end 3 ways.
Gonna change anyway in the 2014 code. At least regarding 3way and 4ways.MHElectric said:Thats the only way to do it now.
