    Re: Just One Code!

    Here in MD. when the local jurisdiction adopted the IPC . One inspector came out to a job and stated " International Code Anything Goes". I said "Yep pretty much".

          Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.

I wish I could remember the town but up close to the boarder of WC. the company I work for was bidding 2 houses out for a builder and they ended up passing the job up when they found out the 80 year old part time plumbing inspector still required galvi. screw pipe for water I meen welcome to the 21 century budy and cast and gal. screw for sewer I was almost waiting to see if he wanted us to wipe a lead joint for the water service

            I'm making a guess that it's probably Lake Forest,Il. with C.I and galv. W+V.....

              we be under the Idiots Plumbing Code, wherein any fool with a pair of pex cutters and a case of Studor Vents can be a plumber


              I have always found that venting a toilet seemed a bit of a waste of time when you consider that a toilet is a fully, self siphoning fixture and siphons only siphon if you don't vent them. IPC says you have to have a vent somewhere within the system. Could be a half mile away

              If you somehow could crown vent the S trap on a toilet, would it still siphon flush or would it just gravity/atmospheric pressure flush?
              So, why bother to vent a toilet line. What is that vent really venting? Cause it's not venting the toilet trap.

                Not anymore. Can you say "horizontal wet vent"? As in, the WC in a bathroom group as well as the shower or tub can be vented off the horizontal trunck line by way of the branch for the lavy.

                  Wait a minute,No (say for instance)comby on a trap arm.Are they saying the trunk breaks the siphon,what about the vacuum from water rushing by.What about the toilet that would not flush properly because the vent was plugged with a Birdsnest and leaves.
                  So how are they allowing it?
                  The same as a combination waste and vent where they want you to take the vent from the furthest point upstream.

                  Hot doggitty,I'm goin' to order me up a couple busloads.Train these boys,Call-em master plumers by lunchtime.

                    I've never really worried about the vent on a toilet, it's usually vented incidentally by the lav right next to it.

                    we do have some guys that don't know any way to pipe a bathroom group but with a 3x2 cross tee under the closet, lav on one arm, tub on the other, everything gets vented. but damn it's ugly.

                    I hate some of our new construction guys.
                    No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.
