I just completed my 1st paid inspection today! I had a couple questions hoping to get input on.
1st - Kitchen sink trap was located in basemen not under sink. ok or not ok?
2nd - wiring to the kitchen range is aluminium. Does this need to be replaced?
3rd - tile liner in the chimney didn’t go to the top of the chimney. it ended about 3 feet down, but above the roof. any concern?
(Joe Funderburk, CMI)
Trap must be within 2’ of the drain.
Alum. ok on circuits > 20 amp.
Flue should be referred to a chimney specialist.
Mike, I responded in your other thread.
Trap… yes, located underneath the floor sheathing (in basement) is acceptable as long as it is within 24" of the sink tailpiece.
Chimney… flue liner needs to exit the chimney (chase) completely.
