410.10 (d)


why its is 8 feet height from the shower stall? I guess to be far enough from the showerhead and shower spray.

We did not imagine a shower head will be in the ceiling located outside the ZONE.That Zone become now not safe to install a damp rated fixture.

what about installing a ceiling shower head next to an existing light fixture or exhausted fan "suitable for wet location" located outside the Zone?

the code 410.10(D) need to be changed to be at least three feet from the "SHOWERHEAD" 

according the code 410.10 (A) the light fixture still "suitable for wet location"

what about installing a ceiling shower head next to an existing light fixture or exhausted fan "suitable for wet location" located outside the 8 X 3 Zone?

is this still safe what if the pipe is leaking from the ceiling and spraying ? its not in pool niche light fixture its just "suitable for wet location".

any comments ?
