Just wondering for the state of Florida can I use the Nachi standards, or do I have to use the state's which I believe is FABI?

It's a sad day in Dayton today.

What is the going rate?

NACHI - Sat, 06/22/2013 - 00:20
Just out of curiosity, and I'd like to know where the rates are after licensing, what would you charge for a 1983, split level with 2 furnaces, attached garage. 1750 sq/ft. I charge as a minimum $495.00. Where are the rest of the Alberta home inspectors at? Now let's not turn this into the typical Nachi...My dick is Bigger than yours match...I'd like to hear some serious numbers to compare and to possibly up the rate for us.

Future Double tap?

NACHI - Fri, 06/21/2013 - 22:44
So, every body knows double taps are incorrect, so why is this 2013 home equipped with this type of breaker? Is it a new breaker that allows 2 wires to be connected to one breaker.? I know the reason behind double tap being incorrect, so being that this breaker separates each wire, makes it ok......what do you guys think?

Hello Folks. I have been out of the inspection business for years and as I was moving the other day I discovered, deep in storage, my Thomas model107CAB18 pump that I had purchased when I was doing inspections and planning on doing mold testing.
