Re: ungrounded wall outlets
said by Bob Anderson:Yes you can. 3-prong receptacles without utility ground conductor was NEVER allowed in the code (so no grandfathering).
OK, thanks everyone. Not much I can do about this in a tenant landlord situation.
You can state that you are aware that there is a hazardous code violation regarding the 3-prong receptacles and inform him of his OBLIGATORY options: 2-prong replacement, or GFCIs or new wiring. Show it as a "favor" that you worry FOR HIM that someone in other units could get shocked/electrocuted (different meanings i know) and he'd be on the line for liability.
