Report Writing - Grow Your Business & Shrink Your Liability
The goal is to help you write reports that your clients love, while minimizing your risk. We’ll start at the macro - Why are we writing reports? What are we trying to accomplish? And then move to the micro – What do we say? How do we say it? We’ll talk about saving time, eliminating fluff and focusing on clarity. We’ll challenge you to re-think about some of things that you’ve always done. Join us for a different way to look at what you do every day.

A Plumber Talks About Water Heaters
Master Plumber and certifed home inspector Kenny Hart talks about the recent and the not so recent changes he's seen to water heater technology over his 40 plus years in the trade. He will discuss installation issues and the TPR valve.
Charles Buell put on a great presentation on April 6, 2016 at the first meeting of the MAC ASHI Online Meeting Group. The well known blogger, gave us a lot of information on “Grounding and Bonding.”
Our SOP’s are a little light on what we are to inspect regarding this except to say we are to inspect “Grounding.” In this presentation Charles will discuss “grounding” and how important it is, as well as the difference between grounding and bonding. He will discuss how we cannot really discuss grounding without discussing bonding. It will dispel some myths about what grounding and bonding do and cannot do.
