I received a call from a client who I did an inspection for back in February. They had water coming up through the floor drain in the laundry room that flooded a portion of the first floor. Plumber came out and rodded to the street and when that didn’t work, rodded the drain inside the house and this cleared the clog.
They weren’t looking to blame me for anything (Thank God for spending the time to explain the limitations of an inspection!) and were just looking for advice, but it got me to thinking that maybe I’d be doing a better job for my client if I started running water down these to test for drainage.
Do any of you check this and if so, how?
