The Inflow and Infiltration (I/I) Compliance Program
West St. Paul and Golden Valley require all properties to be I/I compliant prior to being put on the market for sale. This is to prevent costly clean-ups and repairs caused by excessive clear water entering the sanitary sewer system. Click the city name below to read more about their programs and requirements.
How to Prepare Your Home for a Truth in Sale of Housing (TISH) Inspection
There are many quick and inexpensive repairs that could be done prior to a TISH inspection, saving you from negotiating more costly repairs later.
The 3 Most Common Repairs
- Missing or inoperable Smoke Detectors & Carbon Monoxide Alarms
- Missing Backflow Preventer (What is a backflow preventer?)
- Leaky Plumbing
- TIP: To check for leaks, fill up a sink or tub, pull out the stopper. Watch pipes to make sure you don’t have any plumbing issues. Do this for all sinks and tubs, including laundry sinks or industrial tubs. If a pipe is leaking just a little bit, you may be able to tighten it with a wrench.
