Default Plumbing Systems Inspection

I'm being asked to do a residential home inspection for a home with PB piping. Long story short: the investment company that sold the home to the buyer tried to sell it with PB piping and got called out on it so they're going to pay to have it re-piped. {Buyer tells me that the home-owner insurance company won't insure his newly-purchased home with PB piping.}

I've done work for this real estate outfit before and I'll probably get the job to do the re-pipe but what I'm after is a printable plumbing inspection form complete with check boxes that makes me look professional as I walk through the place and do my inspection.

Do any of you have forms like this that you use? If so, where did you get them?

TOMMY...Just shave real close the morning of the inspection, wear a clean work shirt and pants....and also, pull your pants up and wear a belt so that your butt crack dont show and I guarantee that you will look more professional than about 99 % of the competition out there...


I am thinking the best way to do your inspection would be to take a lot of pictures with the cell phone like real home inspectors do..... even though the original home inspectors flubbed up on this home inspection, pictures taken made them look like they seem to know what they were doing...

Pictures of all the old faucets and fixtures would be wise.... shots of where you might have to tear out drywall to do job.... the more pictures the better

# of bathrooms.. and locations upstairs or down
# of outside faucets
# water heaters and age of heater..
#of kitchens
# of laundries...

# of faucets and fixtures that might need replaced in home
as work is being done.....due to their increased age....

Estimate the Total amount of drywall damage that is going to have
to be repaired after you do the work...
and who gets stuck doing the drywall repair....???? I have had them try to stick that mess onto me before so you need to be clear that the drywall repairs are not your problem........

Total cost for job... $$$


I would also give them a plan of attack if you have to go overhead
to get water lines over to a kitchen sink on a slab home.....


I cant think of anything else unless you are on a slab home and
you got to tear up concrete to get to the kitchen and all the other fixtures......

Tommy do you want me to send my inspection check list, it's in French? I'd have to delete a few things first.

I'll send it to you if you want to and I can figure it out how to send a pdf here. Another thing it's no way I'll post it in an open forum, you guys should move it to the private section.
