I recently dropped of a radon monitor at a vacant townhome that I am going to be inspecting later this week.
I observed the presence of PB piping and wanted to ask how you would report this condition.
The townhouse was built in 1994 and I know the whole association has PB.
The last time I inspected a similiar situation I refferred a plumber and he didnt know much about PB.
This type of PB is the Vangaurd with the PB2110 identification.
Would you report this as a major concern? Cost could be from 4 to 7 k to replace.
Would you report this as a monitor condition? Wait until a pipe burst inside a wall and your home floods.
I noticed the home had a filtration system to help with the chlorination problem that can effect PB.
If i remember the PSI rating on the pipe was only 100 or 120. The home had a pressure reducing valve but what if that fails?
I posted this in the report writing in the members only area and received 0 responses.
