Site 440

System type: ICS
Installed: 1995
Inspected: 2003

System is fine, but owner wants to keep it isolated during the time that the house is being remodeled. Tried to reason with the client that the system can be turned on even with the remodeling occurring, but client wouldn’t listen.

Un-isolated the system and checked for leaks. No leaks in collector, piping, or valves. Insulation tape is starting to deteriorate, but the insulation is in relatively good condition.
