This of course is a business decision you are going to have to make. Hopefully you have not agreed that you may have missed it, just that hmm, thats odd, I`ll have to go and see it.
Put your findings in writing concerning the replaced water heater and 3 inch pipe. Document your normal inspection procedure and any referance to the readings taken at the time of inspection.
Then say, since no one witnessed the condition, you can only,like them,speculate what has happened. Offer the broker that since this is a valuable client to his office, (their $3-10k commision) and that his office is of value to your business you would be more than happy to set aside some of your inspection time to accompany the service tech of his choosing to verify proper installation and consider the matter closed.
The broker, using your services often, should know if your past performances for his office have ever created any issues and that this issue should not be laid in your lap, who made the 300.00, and wasnt even the last man in. Just my 2cents. Good luck and leave your check book at home.
