Overpacked Electrical Outlets
Hi I recently got some wiring roughed in my home. I’m located in Ontario, Canada. I have several receptacle boxes that seem like they are overloaded with wires? The boxes are 2x3x2.5 and the wire is 14-2. One box for example has 4 black, 4 white, 4 grounds, 3 merets and the 15 amp receptacle itself. Just looking at it, it seems wrong and there is no way that everything will fit or if it even passes code.
I’ve questioned the electrician about it several times. The first time prior to drywall, he says everything should fit in. The second time he says the job passed inspection. I’m looking to get a clear answer if its actually installed correct or its something thats being done and overlooked.
Would anyone be able to assist guiding me if this would pass in Ontario, or even your own jurisdiction?
