    Default Tankless WH Receptacle Cover Plate

    Exterior wall-mounted tankless water heater. Receptacle cover plate required to be listed and rated for damp area? In-use type?

    That receptacle outlet is required to be:
    - listed and identified as weather-resistant (WR)
    - listed and identified as tamper-resistant (TR)
    - GFCI protected
    - and if that enclosure is not a raintight enclosure, then the receptacle outlet also needs to have a bubble type cover for it (was there a door over that area, or was it open?)

    That looks recessed into the wall, is the proper wall insulation R-value in the wall behind it?

    That water heater is bottom fed, does it have an atmospheric vacuum breaker installed?

    Is that cord rated for that use?

    This was not intended to be a duplicate thread. The site chose the very moment I pushed the post button to have a little database experience.
