I have a small plumbing business and we recently got a new inspector for our county, and he is a nightmare to work with. Very inconsistent with how he inspects things, saying something is OK sometimes, then failing us for the same thing in the future. Refuses to answer simple code based inquiries when they come up, and instead just tells us to ‘look in the code book,’ and almost always drums up some tiny detail on a job to fault. He seems to take genuine pleasure in screwing people over. I’m not alone in my complaints, he’s pretty much universally despised by all the other plumbers in the area. How does one deal with that?
