Plumbing Tips and Advice: How to Avoid a Home Inspection Citation
Some plumbing problems are obvious, others not so. Health and home inspectors are experienced and well-trained experts keen at finding both. While you may be aware of certain plumbing issues such as a clogged toilet, other not-so-obvious issues could result in a citation for certain plumbing violations. A popular chain restaurant in Coweta County recently received such citations from a health inspection. Several violations were noted, including pipe leaks under the dish machine and washer sink, and mold on the drop area of the ice machine. Both were repeat violations. The local health inspector said in an interview that plumbers already submitted their estimates to fix the leaks in March, but the restaurant failed to act on them. The inspector had a plumber do the repairs immediately during this latest inspection.
