It's never a good idea to put trip hazards across the sidewalks... INSPECTION PHOTO

This is a sprinkler line.  It is made out of pvc piping and is not supposed to be exposed to sunlight nor is it suppose to be across a sidewalk. It also breaks easily so if anyone stepped on it, it would crack and be spraying water everywhere.

It is supposed to underground to protect it and protect the people walking on the sidewalk.

That sprinkler line placement doesn't seem to make a lot of sense.  John, Thanks for sharing your photo.

Details details details - everybody understands a leaking roof is a serious problem, but only few people are able to evaluate the property properly. Good inspector needs and hawk eye for details!
