I recently asked a member to post a picture of their C.O. detector and soon realized I am being a hypocrite by not doing as such, so I started a thread.

Oh why not. I'll put my three up here--the 3rd is not recommended by anyone & is just an example of what NOT to rely on in any way, shape or form---it DON'T work

ok, now that I've recovered from the scare and made it back from the bathroom.....

i gotta say those eyes look like they are following me around the room....you're creepin' me out dude - quit starin' at me! :fear:

They kinda remind me of the disappointed look i'd get from the priest as I left the confessional.

For a rehab we did in NJ a few years back, the amount of work done to the house made it mandatory to hardwire smoke / CO detectors throughout the place. It was "nice" of them to change their mind about the % work threshold after we had already finished and painted the drywall. :bang: I had to go back and strategically cut holes in the drywall so the contractor could run the wiring. It had to be an electrical contractor do the work also. This was a township AHJ, I don't know if this requirement was trickling down from the state or county or just for this township.

I worked on a new construction project, multi unit apartment in Maine's largest city, and combination smoke/CO detectors were mandatory. What gets me, most CO deaths appear to be in single family homes and not multi unit apartment buildings.

There's that fine line that separates having the gov't telling somebody what they HAVE to do with their personal property versus well intentioned laws for protecting people that lack the common sense to do it themselves.

Our county just went through this debate over sprinklers in new construction single family homes. They have been mandatory in new multi unit dwellings since your stupid condo/townhouse neighbor could burn you out, but they wanted to extend that to single family homes too.

I have my CO detector right behind my stove (and one on the first floor) as part of my "control and information board".

Hardwired CO detectors with battery backup have been mandatory in Maryland (new construction) since 2008. Once that code took affect technically all homes with hardwired smoke detectors are required to follow the 2008 code requirement when their detectors get replaced although many people do not.

Mandatory in MA. As if you had to ask - EVERYTHING is mandatory in MA, whether you agree or NOT! :lol:

Just bought a new one last month after realizing my old one was 8 years old .. and the battery was 3! :roll:

Had it up to 247 already when I failed to secure a piece of paper in the combustion fan. I was out in the barn, so the stink didn't alert me to a problem. Fell like a rock once I fixed my paper. Definitely got to make a metal slide for that thing. Next year. :D
