Our new home has a dedicated shop space. I'd like to add a utility sink and the best place for it would be on a wall that has a 15a, 240v outlet on it. The outlet would be below the top of the sink by about 2-1/2' and immediately to the left of the back left leg. The wall with the outlet is actually shared by a bathroom on the other side & the toilet is right there so there's currently water plumbing in the same area (within about a foot).
Based on where the outlet is, I'm not currently planning to use it.
Is that acceptable to have the 15 amp, 240v outlet in that proximity to the sink (and if not, is it likely that the outlet proximity to the toilet on the other side of the wall is a code violation)?
If it is, I'm thinking it'd be a good idea to use an outdoor cover box over it as a splash guard; agree?
Thanks in advance!
