I am a consumer, not an inspector. Is that okay for this forum?
I purchased a home this last year and I am finally getting settled in and figuring out the house. I am a first time homebuyer and hired a home inspector for a typical inspection just prior to closing.
I am pretty sure this outdoor plumbing/irrigation setup is not only not according to code, but may also be illegal(?).
See the pic below. The house is on city water, but you can see the pump in the middle so that you can use a well for irrigation/sprinklers (to the right of where the well connects in). Then, to the left, you see two gate valves. The one on the left lets you use the sprinklers with house/city water (the one next to it I have no idea still).
Can they both be connected on the same system like that?
If not, should it have been part of the inspection report? Or not because it is outside (although on the exterior wall)?
WHEN I RUN THE SPRINKLERS WITH THE WELL THE HOUSE SMELLS LIKE WELL WATER!
