Differences with Home Inspections in the Conejo Valley

There are a few differences between inspecting in the Conejo Valley and the San Fernando Valley.

In the City of Los Angeles, which includes most of the San Fernando Valley, all gas meters must have a seismic shut off valve that shut off the gas service to the house in the event of an earthquake. In the Conejo Valley, seismic shut off valves are not required, although they are still recommended.

Another difference is the rule for a water heater TPR (tempature pressure relief) valve discharge pipe. The TPR valve opens in case the water heater over heats and discharges the hot water to prevent the water heater from exploding. In California, the discharge pipe is required to route the hot water to the exterior. The City of Los Angeles, however, has not changed their paperwork with this requirement and the city has been allowing the discharge pipes that terminate at the garage floor. For the individual cities in the Conejo Valley, the TPR discharge pipe requirement is in line with the State of California, in that they must go to the exterior of the building.

Another small difference is homes in the San Fernando Valley have a mix of both raised foundations and slab foundations. In the Conjeo Valley,  there tends be a much higher percentage of slab foundation construction.
