I have a customer (seller) asking me for Termite, and Gas Line Inspection. I can do the Termite (have the required license) but I am unclear on the Gas Inspection. What is required? Is it a pressure test? I sold a house recently and a HI did the Termite and Gas Inspections, although I wasn’t present I doubt he did a pressure test. He did find a leak in the basement. My question is how does everyone do this? and whats required? I have a sniff meter (tif8800) and can check all the acessible lines. I would love to do a pressure test, but don’t have the requirements to get a Plumbers License (7 years in the trade + others) I’m sure you have to have this to pressure test gas lines (if I’m incorrect here please tell me). I think I understand the insurance and underwriting precautions. As long as you “service” something (and inspecting for leaks qualifies) you can provide a warranty.
I have asked this to Columbia Gas, several State of Ohio agencies and even Hondros College (where I went to HI school) and no one can give me an answer. By the way this is Ohio. ![icon_question.gif](upload://t2zemjDOQRADd4xSC3xOot86t0m.gif)
