Finding Small Faults With 'The Inspector'

February 04, 1996

Wendy Madnick did a wonderful job reporting on the benefits of a home inspection ("The Inspector," Jan. 21). Ted Knowles is the type of qualified individual that the inspection trade sorely needs.

I wish to point out two small errors in the article. First, a water heater may be securely strapped with plumbers tape if done to code and the State Architect's standards. Secondly, a picture on the first page shows a flexible gas connector in the crawl space extending through the floor. This is dangerous and illegal (Building Code section 1212.0).
