Default Questions of the week of 02/17/19

Welcome to another round of Questions of The Week!





Questions of the week:


Please Read the Introduction and requirements, changes may have been made.

A member of the Award Committee will post a question, at a random day/time.

A competing member may make one post per question thread to answer the question and the member's winning entry must have all parts of the question answered completely in that one post. Editing your one answer post allowed will result in disqualification.

Winnings will be limited to no more than five times in a given year, the objective is to allow as many Members a chance to win as possible.
This week we're opening it up to more members!
Any disregard to the above and divulging the correct answers or giving hints/references will cause a disqualification.

So please refrain from participating if you have already won in the maximum for the Year.

First correct answer (as judged by the Awards Committee or Poster of the Question) wins.

The lucky winner will get a case of "Now that you've had a Home Inspection Books" shipped to them at their address on file. Make sure your Address on File with Inachi is correct.

Winners of the Question of The Week shall request their prize by emailing fastreply@nachi.org and submitting their Mailing address for shipping.

Allow 2 weeks for delivery.

If no correct answers, the responses may then be open to others at a time determined by the committee.

Good luck!

Me too!

I just did a 203K which is changing from a sandpoint well to aqua. Since I'm the consultant I did a quick study on wells so I would at least be able to discuss the work. Hence the well questions.

Wow! Thanks!

I learned a thing or two about wells building customs in the Rockies, and I learned even more from researching your questions!

My pleasure.

I learn a lot from QOTW. I answer the questions when the other committee members put them out there. After a while a guy can sound like he's pretty smart, even if he isn't. That's how I roll.
