It seems the subject of flood testing showers is a very sensitive one online. Here in Vancouver, British Columbia all showers are required to be flood tested. That might be to general of a statement so to be more specific all showers that have a permit are required to be flood tested. So if you live in Vancouver and skip this step - is it wrong?
I say yes. If you need to flood test your showers in a new home or commercial project you need to insist that this get done in a simple renovation.
But what about other cities and in the states. I heard today that in Bridgton, Maine you are not required to preform them. I was called a "Lying Bastard" for even posting information about them. So who's right? Are flood tests required in Maine? Are they required in Vancouver.
I'd like to hear from as many regulars as possible and would ask each of you to call your local building department and ask the question as to what the required steps are. If a permit is not needed to renovate a room and keep it the same ask them if they recommend that this step be done. Also ask about new construction for me please.
Share your information here and perhaps we can get a state by state, province by province list going.
Thanks for any and all help!
