Default Questions of the Week, September 26

The Awards Committee, in their quest to get more members, especially new members, to participate in the weekly “Questions of the Week” competition, have decided to change it up a little this week by having a scavenger hunt. Five questions have been asked with the answers somewhere on the InterNACHI site. This weeks questions have all been taken from various InterNACHI courses.


As this is a replacement for the Questions of the Week, the following rules and limitations apply.

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.


Winners will be limited to no more than 3 times in a given year, the objective is to allow as many Members a chance to win as possible.
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 the maximum for the Year.

First correct answers (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.


Good Luck!



1. In InterNACHI’s “How to Inspect for Moisture Intrusion Course” what course of action is recommended when a steady drip at a faucet going unnoticed?


2. Why would it be expected that PWF basements would be warmer than masonry?


3. On a wall sheathed with particle board, where should the four corners meet?


4. What is a phase change?


5. When there are gas drilling operations nearby, what should you be testing well water for?

1-Recommend that it be repaired promptly
2-The basement will be warmer because wood is a better insulator than masonry, and the foundation wall studs provide large cavities for insulation. However, it must be considered that wood foundation walls are typically much thinner than masonry walls. Also, masonry can be insulated.
3- should not meet
4-changes in states of matter- gas to liquid, etc
5-Total Dissolved Solids, Chlorides, Sodium, Barium, pH, Corrosion index, Strontium, Specific Conductivity---all if your trained of course.
