When you encounter a open ground at a receptacle do you rate it as a Maintenance / Repair item or do you write it up as Defective ?

Why and how come ? :confused:

It's "defective".


Because it's not right.

If a roof leaks, is it defective or maintenance?

It's defective.


Because it's not doing its job - it leaks.

In need of repair.
Maintenance would be cleaning, painting, and such.
Grounds don't go bad because they need cleaning, painting or lubricating.
They are bad/defective and need to be fixed.
Call it like it is.
