System type: ICS system
Installed: 1996
Inspected: 2003

System working fine after correcting valve positions.

New owner of the house. System was isolated (via isolation valves). Current tenant had isolated the system because he had noticed water coming out of the freeze valve in the winter. He isolated the system. Unfortunately, the freeze valve is supposed to open and release water intermittently during temperatures below 40 F.

Inspector un-isolated system, and checked for collector and valve leaks. No leaks. Provided resident with instructions on how the system works (especially the freeze valve) and on anticipated savings.

Owner requested a system manual, which inspector will send.
