The Plumbing Code
The Code outlines the best and most modern methods
to be used in plumbing installations. Since the plumbing in any private
or public building is a part of the community water and sewage disposal
system, it is vital that such installations should not be left to the
discretion of irresponsible individuals. The protection of the public
health and safety must be maintained by the establishment of sound code
A plumbing or sanitation code is not a plumber's code.
It is rather a set of Rules and Regulations imposed by cities, counties
and states on anyone who undertakes any work involving the installation
of drinking water, sewer or toilet facilities in homes, offices, factories,
schools and hospitals. Regardless of who might do the work, plumbing and
sanitation codes require that it be done in a specific, safe manner because
it was found that failure to do so caused widespread disease, which can
be crippling and deadly-to the community.
