We now have the ability to test well water. We have a relationship with a highly respected lab to do the analysis of well water. We always recommend the testing of well water before making a purchase decision regarding a property.
As a native son of Ohio, I must comment on the passing of John Glenn. A truly great American.
John Glenn Jr. (July 18, 1921 – December 8, 2016) was an American aviator, engineer, astronaut, and United States Senator from Ohio. In 1962 he became the first American to orbit the earth, circling three times. Before joining NASA, he was a distinguished fighter pilot in both World War II and Korea, with five Distinguished Flying Crosses and eighteen clusters.
He went into space and orbited the earth in a very experimental and risky spacecraft. He realized the importance of this flight for our nation and accepted the challenge. And then at an advanced age he went into space again because of his true love of space exploration.
He served his nation and Ohio as a US Senator. Always putting Ohio and the nation first.
Godspeed John Glenn and we will miss you.
Remember that home inspectors are not code inspectors. Our goal is to provide our clients with information to make the right decision. So what is the concern with exterior electric panels? Many of these panels are within local code but think about a heavy rain hitting the box .... would it prevent water from entering the box and causing an arc or short? If you have an exterior box consider adding additional protection to keep water from entering the box. Even a simple awning of some sort above the box would provide some protection. Or buy one of the many enclosures that provide adequate protection.
On Wednesday, I inspected a beautiful condo unit on the Waccamaw River. What a beautiful place!
Tomorrow, we are going to York and Fort Mill, SC to inspect two homes. Always glad to return to the greater Rock Hill area.
Remember, we service all of the South Carolina!
Have a great weekend and happy hunting for those that are looking for a new home!
I am a full-time home inspector servicing all of South Carolina.
