How to Handle a Plumbing Code Violation
Local governments impose a series of plumbing codes that are designed to ensure the safety of your home or business. If you discover a plumbing code violation in your property, it can mean that the plumbing system is unsafe or non-compliant. At Bill Frusco Plumbing, Heating, & Cooling, we understand that a code violation can be a costly and time-consuming issue to resolve. We strive to make the process as easy as possible – and that includes laying out what you can expect if you find a plumbing code violation and how you can fix it.
What is a plumbing code violation?
It is a violation of the local plumbing code and can lead to fines, repair costs, and even legal trouble. A plumbing code violation occurs when an individual or business does not follow the rules and regulations set in place by the locality.
- Some common plumbing code violations include:
- Improper installation of plumbing systems, such as water heaters, toilets, and drainage systems
- Using the wrong size or type of pipe for a particular job
- Not properly connecting all piping components
- Installing faulty fixtures, such as sinks and taps
- Not enough space for easy maintenance and repair of plumbing systems
How do I know if I have a plumbing code violation?
If you have recently had any work done on your plumbing system, it is important to check with your local authority to ensure that the work was up to code. This can be done by requesting a copy of the inspection report for any recent work done in your home or business. If you are purchasing an existing property, the seller should provide you with a copy of the inspection report. You can also contact our team at Bill Frusco Plumbing, Heating, & Cooling.
