Norfolk Home Inspection Pic of the Day

· No Comments · Plumbing

This picture is of an old drum trap found during today’s Norfolk home inspection. The bathtub above was draining very slowly. So when we got in the crawlspace we observed a couple of different things going on. First was the old drum trap, and second was the drain line from the trap to the main drain line was sloped uphill. 

There are a few different types of traps that can cause issues with your plumbing system. In older homes and renovated home we will come across them and report them so that you can have corrected by a plumbing professional. The graphic below highlights some of the traps we keep an eye out for.


The Virginia Beach home inspector “Pic of the Day” will highlight some of the items we come across during our home inspections. Some pictures will be safety concerns, some will be what were they thinking items, and some will just be funny.
