Plumbing Inspection

Tomorrow I am having my waste disposal system inspected by video-scope via the rear clean-out. It’s just highly recommended routine maintenance as the surrounding structure is over 50 years old. Hopefully there will be no need for further evaluation, sample analysis, or invasive and destructive testing by licensed and qualified specialists. While the procedure itself is straightforward, preparation requires that no solids be ingested at the intake for two days and that the system be purged, not once but twice. This is difficult as the controlling mechanism is programmed to demand fuel on a regular basis.

Therefore…I’m kind of grumpy!

The good news is that I will not be posting any pictures.

That sounds like a diet my wife was on once. [-crzwom] [:-crazy]

I feel for you. I had the same inspection Dec. 6. That fleets stuff that you need to put into the system first should be illegal. I found out that the system seems to reject the fleets less when combined with a chemical commonly referred to as ginger-ale.

I hope every thing comes out alright in the end.

Plumbing Inspection Report

Conditions: 98°F, sun not shining.

Description: Self contained waste system (no hookup to city sewer) located in 1949 mobile home.

Method of Inspection: Access hatch inadequate for physical entry. Inspection conducted using flexible bore-scope (model U.P. Uranus II).

Findings: Design was typical of this type of structure. One small anomaly was detected and removed otherwise no significant defects were observed that might adversely affect the function or drainage of the system. Pressure relief valve was tested at the conclusion of the inspection and found to be in good working order (although somewhat noisy). Although the inspection was limited to the plumbing it was observed that the overall structure was bulging a little at the midpoint. This might be due to lack of proper maintenance or excessive fuel intake.

Recommendations: Suggest next inspection be scheduled for 2009. Meanwhile…re-fueling can resume immediately although quantities could perhaps be reduced.

End of report.

PS…Thanks guys!

Richard
