    According to the contractor, this short section of trenchless sewer pipe was cut out because when it was installed the smaller diameter pipe was not connected. The smaller pipe serves a clothes washer. I have a hard time believing anybody anymore.

    The required procedure for the installation of trenchless sewer pipe includes a camera run done before the work commences; with the inspector present. That should avert such mistakes as eliminating a lateral. I have never witnessed the "before" camera run. The contractor always has an excuse for why it wasn't done.....it was an emergency repair.....we didn't know about the procedure.....their office didn't give them the instructions that BS stapled to the permit.

    In this case, no permit was obtained for the trenchless and it was done over a year ago. Well that's all according to the latest contractor.

    Sounds like you have a golden opportunity calling you.
    Is it possible for you to start a Residential & Commercial
    construction forensics company in addition to your current
    Inspector job ?.......This is similar to what the Forum owner
    did.......Plus, it would give you control over the level of
    inspection, and "piles and piles of cash", and you COULD
    make a significant difference in hiring & training the next
    generation of qualified Inspectors.

    Hell's bells Shirley, it might just give you some satisfaction
    to be a Game Changer in your area. ;)

    My certifications expire for the eighth time next January. I'm hoping that the only license that I will need after that is a fishing license.....oh and I might kill some deer.
