In reading another post, I noticed some inspectors take water pressure readings during the normal course of their inspection. I currently do not unless I am doing a well flow and pressure test.
Can anyone that does do water pressure tests share with me the following:
1. Do you do it on all homes?
2. What equipment do you use? (I personally like the glycerin filled gauges with a max level indicator.)
3. Where do you take your reading (hose spigot or interior tap)?
I currently make a general statement on water pressure regarding visual observations made while running fixtures either concurrently or alone.
Adding a pressure reading seems to make sense and I think it will add a dimension to my inspection as I can identify high pressure situations that I may currently be missing with my current procedure.
Thank you for your feedback.
