I would like to see who is bringing along a shovel to dig it up and check it.

What, a backhoe isn’t standard HI equipment? How else can you check the depth of the footings? icon_rolleyes.gif

You should be able to see it from the basement window right?

The correct answer is 8’ and yes you can usually rent a Bobcat backhoe at any rental store, but it does increase the price of the inspection significantly. icon_biggrin.gif

Don’t laugh.


Last Wednesday I talked to an electrician who was told by an inspector that he had cut the ground rod. After a half of an hour the inspector agreed to pay the electrician $65.00 if the ground rod was 8' in the ground. ![icon_surprised.gif](upload://57CELbNgOav4I8DdysEp4jSUiyx.gif)

A backhoe was close by and the sparky got the guy to put it for him.
Cost the inspector $65.00.

The trick is to cut the bottom off the rod, not the top. icon_wink.gif
