As a Home Inspector, I run into a lot of components and systems around the house that are just in need of a little tender lovin' and care and really aren't that big of a deal.

A switch has been installed for your convenience ;)     How nice.  News flash: There's a "switch" on the pump!  It's called a F-L-O-A-T.  It rises and/or activates when the water level rises and turns on the pump.  Amazing!!  Who knew?!?! Or you can just stand in the basement stairwell all day an...

  You know the rest, “then wear it.” Everyone’s heard this saying before, I’m sure.  But what if the “shoe” doesn’t fit? Well then, you just have to improvise and make it fit!  Just like this so-called “plumber” did.   That black, rubber fitting (the “shoe”) is typically known in the trade as a F...
