I was hoping to get some feedback in regard to water levels. I have thought about starting to use a water level as part of my foundation inspection. I am not sure if this is a good idea especially since I cant find any real hard core information as to allowable slope differential for existing dwellings.
It appears that neither the ACI or any code authority publishes a maximum allowable slope tolerance for existing slab-on-ground foundations and construction tolerances published by the American Concrete Institute (ACI) allow for a new slab to have a slope as high as 1.25 inches over 10-feet.
Does any body use this type of equipment?
Can anyone recommend were I could purchase this type of equipment?
Any information regarding to this would be appreciated.
