Pressure Relief Valve

Inter Nachi - Tue, 03/19/2013 - 01:32
During my inspection on Sunday I noted that the boiler was leaking, and upon further investigation found that the pressure relief valve was leaking. I took one picture of the valve and wanted to get a better picture, just as I clicked the picture and the valve went off like old faithful. Scared the crap out of me!!

This is a good reason to recommend that there be a Pressure relief valve drain line on the boiler.

The boiler was short cycling and steam could be seen coming from the valve also.

Spectoscope???

Inter Nachi - Tue, 03/19/2013 - 01:25
Does anyone have experience with the Spectoscope, which allows you to take roof photos while standing on the ground? The images are transferred from the camera atop a tesescoping pole to a telephone. I wondered if there is a way to swivel the camera from the ground and how clear are the photos?

Rafters on smaller Ridge board

Inter Nachi - Tue, 03/19/2013 - 00:51
The cut ends of the rafters should come in contact with the entire ridge board. Correct?
What I need is supporting evidence/documentation.

Inter Nachi - Mon, 03/18/2013 - 22:24
In other words, if I'm a member who signs up for this HON thing under the belief that I'm helping my clients... will salesmen try to sell my clients stuff like alarm systems, etc?

I'm not anti alarm system or anything, I just want to know what is being done with my client's contact info.

Feeding subpanel

Inter Nachi - Mon, 03/18/2013 - 21:43
I inspected a house today that had a 100 amp subpanel in the basement being fed from the main service panel in the garage. The large wire coming from the sub panel is hanging loose in the main panel & has I think # 12 spliced & taped up (1 white & 1 Black)& then tapped into a double wide breaker. Any comments?

Bird mouth splices

Inter Nachi - Mon, 03/18/2013 - 21:31
I found what looks like repair work to valley rafters where bird mouth splices were used. The workmanship was sloppy and there were gaps at the bottom. The splices were nailed. I'm calling out the workmanship just wanted to get some opinions on it
