    Default plumbing code book

    I have a customer who is looking for a plumbing code reference book. I was just wondering if any of you have any recomendations.

    Default book

    Why does he want it? If for code questions, then he needs the one for your area, along with any local amendments the building department has added. Therefore, the local building department is usually a good source for it.

    Thanks for the reply. Thats what I told him, but I was just making sure there wasn't a general reference out there somewhere.

    The UPC and many other code books can be purchased directly from IAPMO:

    Check the reference desk at your local library. They usually have the applicable code books on hand.

    The Minnesota Plumbing Code is posted in it's entirety here:

    http://www.revisor.leg.state.mn.us/b...t&chapter=4715
    --Customers of plumbers: Never be afraid to ask for proof of licensure of the plumber servicing your equipment. A licensed plumber will be proud to show you his personal license.--

    If he's a homeowner, I'd start with the Codecheck series. It's written in layman terms. However, I wouldn't do ANYTHING before showing your design and plans to your inspector.

    If yr not planning to get the deal inspected, then you should read and learn the UPC. Plumbeat Emptor.
