Delving into the intricacies of inspections often reveals
unexpected flaws that can impact daily functionality. Ashi-Certified Inspector
Joe M. sheds light on an improper pitch plumbing line, a concerning find during
an inspection beneath a bar sink.
In this scenario, the plumbing line displayed a flawed
slope—sloping towards the "P" trap instead of away from it. This
contravention of proper installation leads to a counterintuitive situation
where water, instead of flowing naturally with gravity, works against it. All
water draining from the sink follows an uphill path, potentially causing slow
drainage, blockages, and even leaks.
Inspector Joe M.'s discovery emphasizes the importance of
meticulous plumbing installation to ensure proper functionality. LunsPro Home
