The 2009 Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC) helps manufacturers, contractors, installers, and inspectors provide safe and sanitary plumbing systems using advanced technologies and innovations. The UPC is compatible with all model building codes.
The UPC provides minimum standards and requirements to safeguard life or limb, health, property and public welfare by regulating and controlling the design, construction, installation, quality of materials, location, operation and maintenance or use of plumbing systems. You'll find requirements addressing general work in most types of occupancies, from one- and two-family dwellings to medical health care facilities to commercial buildings.
In-depth chapters cover all major topics such as:
- Plumbing fixtures and fixture fittings
- Water supply and distribution
- Indirect waste systems
- Traps and interceptors
