Re: Electrical Outlet Issue
That's why I only install spec grade (commercial grade) receptacles and switches anymore. I had to replace some in my previous house which was only five years old and I was the first owner!
And to answer the next question, I bought the house from a subdivision builder, built from their pre-drawn plan. There wasn't much for customization options or the ability to specify premium electrical parts.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
