    Default OPEN GROUND Defective or Maintenance

    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 ?

    It's "defective".

    Why?

    Because it's not right.

    If a roof leaks, is it defective or maintenance?

    It's defective.

    Why?

    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.
