THE HOME GUIDE SYSTEM - SECTION 4.0 - PLUMBING

PLUMBING INSPECTION OVERVIEW
Whether inspecting a water supply to a building or weak water pressure at the service main The Home Guide Report System takes what is known to be a difficult and time consuming task, and turns it into a smooth and effective inspection of all elements associated with the plumbing.

Sure, you will always have that one aspect that stands out as a real pain in the neck, but for the most part, the items covered, explained and cross referenced in the plumbing section makes what you do a little easier.
FOUR-PART PLUMBING INSPECTION FORM
Here are just a few of the many elements covered in the plumbing inspection. Covers public water, sewer, supply pipes, water pressure, sinks, shower enclosures, and so much more. Within the VISIBLE CONDITIONS area of the report just a few of the many issues specifically covered are bad tile grout, leakage, bad traps and more. Of course the addendum is available if extra space is needed for the plumbing inspection notes or, for that matter, any other part of the report.
PLUMBING DIAGRAM
Plumbing systems can be particularly confusing to a client.  It is difficult sometimes for them to appreciate the big picture and understand how a problem that seems very small can affect the day-to-day operation of a plumbing system.  The diagram provided by the Home Guide provides the inspector with a visual aid to communicate with a client about elements of the plumbing system, which are mostly concealed.
CROSS REFERENCE GLOSSARY FOR PLUMBING
This 12-page glossary gives the client a real education when referring to the plumbing of a home.  For instance, has a client ever asked you what is the difference between a septic tank and a drain field, or can one work properly when the other is damaged?  It may be simple to a home inspector, but the truth of the matter is that in most cases the client doesn't have a clue.  The glossary not only deals with the facts on these issues, but also covers the bathroom from top to bottom, including pipe types and so much more
