As I'm doing the home inspection in Staten Island, I noticed some cones for termites, and i wrote it on my report. The buyer said to me "That means there is no termites" I explained to the buyer the  that just because you see the cones, does not mean it is termite free.

Why duct tape?

Duct tape does wonders! You can use it for just about every thing. But wait a second why use duct tape to cap this sewer line, when you can use a sewer plug/cap. Ok i can't see under the tape, so it could be that the hub is cracked, and they can't put a cap; Well that might create a problem, if the tape gets wet or comes off.
