    Re: Code question?

    We can use pex for the T&P but we have to strap it to the water heater. We don't have to strap cpvc.

    The way our inspectors back in the part of North Carolina I lived in interpreted the code for pans, is that if the water heater was Above a living space we had to pan it. if it just sat on the ground floor it was fine.

    Here in Missouri, it seems like they want a pan if it's over a crawlspace, Even dealt with an inspector who made me pan the water heater sitting on a concrete mechanical room floor, and pipe the pan's discharge 2 feet over to a floor drain.

    No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

      It didn't make sense to me either, he claimed it was to prevent any property damage. I think it was because I tend to argue with inspectors when they try to enforce their interpretation of a code.
