Another reason why inspections are important.

Found this today in a nice lakeside home. Must have been beer 30. :smiley:
The people living their were renting with a purchase option.
The pvc wasn’t even there, never installed. Water heater was six years old.
Makes you sleep well at night knowing that thing is running away in the crawlspace.

Very good catch. From a fellow inspector; thank you for doing your job. People depend on us more than they know.
