Just a little test to see if you know anything about plumbing. :coolsmiley:

This is in an area with no code enforcement so the banks hire their own inspectors before writing a mortgage. The real estate inspector put "no plumbing problems of note" in his report. Two banks declined to write mortgages because of problems their inspectors saw with the plumbing. Finally the county inspector was called in to settle the argument. He condemned the plumbing system and pulled the certificate of occupancy. :icon_mrgreen:

Can any one explain what the owners were thinking? Has anyone encountered anything close to this?

Well, Ron, I am not a plumber, so I'd have no idea if that was a problem or not. But I do know when I saw it I laughed in an audible way. That is usually enough to recommend a qualified inspection.

To many goose necks, nothing appears to go direct into the main line, stand pipe for clean out in wrong location. I don't see any support for the pipes. Poor job, heck one of my hands could do better.

You mean you have indoor plumbing at the Rancho Deluxe?

Reply by Mr. Skippy.

No adverse conditions noted. Extensive plumbing remodeling completed by owner in a workmanlike manner and to local building code.

"An inspection of Mr. Gere's crawl space revealed a Habitrail mysteriously connected to the bathroom plumbing."

Should have used clear pipes. Would be a great hamster habitat.
