First indication of a NEC violation was .2 to .4 amp current on a 15 amp circuit equipment grounding conductor back at the main panel. Next I traced it to the DHW recirculation pump @ the water heater where I measured .15 amp on both the pump cord and gas line. The pump was clearly a remodel add on and appears to be connected to a lighting circuit in the kitchen. The next step is to come back with my EMF electrician and find the actual neutral to ground connection and correct it to NEC compliance. We trace and fix these hazardous violations all over Northern California.
This is an apparent violation of National Electric Code 250.24(A)(5)
A grounding connection shall not be made to any grounded conductor (neutral) on the load side of
the service disconnect.”
250.142 Use of Grounded Circuit Conductor for Grounding Equipment.
(B) Load-Side Equipment. Except as permitted in 250.30(A)(l) and 250.32(B), a grounded circuit conductor shall not be used for grounding non-current-carrying metal parts of equipment on the load side of the service disconnecting means or on the load side of a separately derived system disconnecting means or the overcurrent devices for a separately derived system not having a main disconnecting means.
