Observations and Recommendations

Smoke detectors should be installed (if not already present) on each floor (including attics and basements) and outside all sleeping areas. Consult the manufacturer's literature for recommended mounting locations. Be sure to test your smoke detectors upon moving in and monthly thereafter.

Electrical systems require regular maintenance for safety reasons. Annual inspection and maintenance of the system by a licensed electrician is recommended.

Main service panels were opened and examined. Conditions appear adequate.

Random receptacles were tested using a testing device. Accessible receptacles tested as being wired properly and grounded.

GFCI devices tested functional using a testing device. A ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) is an modern electrical device, either a receptacle or a circuit breaker, which is designed to protect people from electric shock. In the event of a fault in an appliance that you are touching, the current that passes through your body to ground is detected and the circuit is shut off, protecting you from potentially fatal shocks. They are now required in new buildings in wet or damp environments. The Inspector recommends that all receptacles located in the kitchen near the sink, baths, garage, at spas, hot tubs, fountains, pools, crawl spaces, near laundry tubs, and outdoors be upgraded to the Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter type by a licensed electrician if they are not already present. This will considerably improve electrical safety for occupants of the building.

Overall, the system is very similar to what would be installed today.

Note: The inspection does not include low voltage systems, telephone wiring, intercoms, alarm systems, cable TV wiring, timers or smoke detectors.

If the building has no smoke detectors, the Inspector strongly urges their installation. Smoke detectors should be checked periodically to be sure they are working.

Description

The water is supplied by a well and pump.
The waste system is a septic system.
Readily visible plumbing supply pipes appear to be PVC plastic. (Most of the piping is concealed and cannot be identified.) Waste pipes appear to be PVC plastic.
The gas water heater is an on demand system located in an upstairs bedroom closet. The water heater is estimated to be three years old. A temperature pressure relief valve is not required on this type water heater.
A main shut off valve for the water supply piping was found in the pump shed.
