Very good idea. I tried to print copies but couldn’ t. I think these would be good tools used to explain “calls” to customers.


I usually make copies of diagrams from books. On my last inspection i used a diagram of a ceptic system to explain potential problems to my client. She was pleased and explained that it was easier to understand when she could “see” what i was explaining. What im trying to say is that maybe you could make them easier to print out.

Quality Check, I’m not sure but it sounds like your trying to print a copy of the “Tip of the Day” from the homepage! if so, just click on the picture to enlarge it-next click on (File) in the upper left corner-in the box that pops up click on (Print). it should open up your printer and will print out the picture. Hope it helps…Bob

You can actually purchase those diagrams from Carson Dunlop. They are available for purchase as part of the “Illustrated Home”. It will cost about $300 for a book and 1500 or so diagrams. This is a great addition to your report. Thank you goes out to Dan Keogh from Peach Inspections for finding this one.

We’ ve been using the diagrams, but it’s been 50/50 with people. Some like, but some question it. Because the diagram fills the page with a picture of a component or system that is not actually in their house. Sometimes a diagram explanation is too confusing, or too much to include in the report, especially if there’s actually nothing wrong with that particular component or system.

Excellent point there Ben. It does seem to work in reverse when there is really nothing wrong.


Of course sometimes you do confuse the already confused real estate agent, like Nick!

Nick: Is that really in this house?
Inspector: Not really, we just added it to
make them feel better.
Nick: Can you do that.
Inspector: Why sure, we just did.
