Bob Kille Acuspect Home Inspection One of my worst home inspection nightmares became reality today. If you haven’t guess it yet its what happens when you walk away from a filling jaquzzi and forgetting about it. Yep, happened to me and now I’ve got a new rule.

Always inspect the master bathroom before the master bedroom, that way you can still hear the water running, plus you know you still have to inspect the bathroom before leaving the area.

It was quite a mess, I didn’t realize that the water was still running until I came to the bathroom jaquzzi statement in my inspection report. A bit of an adrenline rush combined with a severe sinking feeling is what I’m talk’n about. A good inch of water greeted me at the bathroom door threshold. “Buck up” is what came to mind as I started thinking of what to say to the owner. Well to make a long story short I just emptied the linen closet out onto the floor just after shouting a few choice words.

Please learn from my mistake, inspect the master bath first every time in order to make it a habit. You won’t regret it.
