Home Inspector with Dream Home Inspections/203K Consultant

I don't know if this epidemic has hit the other parts of the country.

But stolen copper pipes has become a major problem here in our area.

I go to more and more inspections where the copper has been stolen from everything: the hot water heater, the copper water distribution pipes, the condenser unit and the air handler in the attic.

I personally don't know how much you can get for raw copper these days but this is just plain stupid to me.

Looks like they left the TPR extension pipe, must've been rookies.
