Re: Death Trap

The issue with receptacles near water is not the receptacle itself, but what someone plugs into it. I doubt anyone is going to accidentally drop a clothes dryer into a sink full of water.

Yes,...

Re: Bugs

I think that the technical term for those is "acorns" and "poo". I believe that they are considered non-destructive, but may be objectionable.

Re: Air conditioning

I can't think of any reason why would you expect the home inspector to know anything about the history of the unit (e.g., that a specific part has been replaced multiple times over a period of 4...

Re: Garage Door Torsion Spring repair

My wife had ours replaced...

Re: Firewall needed between Garage-Breezeway-House?

No.

BTW: a 5/8 gypsum in firewall is never needed on the wall between the garage and the house. 1/2 inch will suffice. 5/8 TypeX is only required for the ceiling when "living space" is over the...

Re: 3rd re-inspection at flip rant

Re: Ridgid RT 5X vs Flir E6

Training first, then you can evaluate your needs, yourself.

Ridgid has a sensitivity of 100mK or 120mK (their documentation is inconsistent)

Re: Water Pressure

There is an obstruction affecting the flow to that fixture. If it affects both hot and cold it is most likely in the spout or faucet body. Don't mess with the valves under the sink.
