    We all deal with plumbing inspectors, and I'm glad we do. They're here to keep things working right and the water pure for everyone.
    Most of the time I look forward to seeing them. It's a time when you can talk shop and catch up on things.
    I like that we try to do things right in the US.
    We "can" drink our water.

    And once the drywall is installed, how would you even fix it?
    Better to get it right, it's going to be there a long time.

    It can be interesting when you hand someone that kind of power though.
    What kind of person becomes an inspector?

    At times I've looked forward to the daily visit from mine,
    sometimes not.
    I've worked in many cities and counties and have met quite a few.

    What has been your experience?

    Just giving this a bump.

    After all the talk about inspectors the other week, I would expect more comments here.
    Hey! You are using inspectors, Right?!!
