My 2x200A service panels are in a crap position.
Two waste water pipes run down between them, a couple of inches out from the wall.
Water pipes run down about 2 inches to the side of the panels, terminating in hose bibs (still next to the panels), which connect up to the laundry sink about 18 inches away.
The faucets for the washer are on an adjacent wall, about 4 feet from the panels.
You don't need to be a professional electrician to know that this is not a good setup...
I'm having my panels replaced, and I'm wondering -
1. Will a competent electrician even agree to install new panels so close to water sources?
2. Even if he does, is the inspector likely to blow his lid? Or maybe let any code violations slide on account of it being a replacement for existing work?
Recommendations? Ideas to discuss with my electrician?
