  Type of Plumbing And Comments:
S WATER: Copper ¾" service entrance. The water is assumed to be piped under the floor.

DRAINS: Cast iron and ABS plastic added on.

The piping outside the kitchen sink shows grease on the joints. It may leak. The drain for the washing machine on the South and the kitchenette in the master bedroom has too many bends, is made with small radius fittings that obstruct flow, and the slope is too low.

The washing machine has no trap and the vent for it and the kitchenette terminates in the utility shed.
Recommendation: Remove the utility area and the kitchenette, and associated piping, due the probability that they were built without a permit and need extensive repairs.
