Avoid These Common Plumbing Violations
Building codes are crucial in keeping you safe and protecting your home. It is the responsibility of any plumbing company to follow these codes as part of their job. Unfortunately, many DIY enthusiasts often disregard their importance. This often leads to us at A.M. Plumbing & Rooter being called in to address the issues and comply with the appropriate regulations. Here are the common plumbing violations you should avoid:
1. Wrongly Sized Drainage Pipes
When it comes to drains, it’s crucial to use piping that meets the required size specified by plumbing codes. Violations occur when the pipes are too small for the drain they connect to. However, it’s also important to avoid using excessively large pipes. A qualified plumber in Murrieta, CA, knows the perfect pipe sizing to ensure smooth flow while maintaining compliance.
2. Improper or Illegal Materials
Materials like rubber fittings and corrugated pipes might provide an easy fix to leaky and damaged pipes, but they often fail to meet plumbing codes for several reasons. It is crucial to research and understand which plumbing materials are approved and recommended before installing new pipes, fittings, or other components in your plumbing system.
3. Inadequate Ventilation
Proper ventilation is key to a well-functioning plumbing system. It prevents sewer gases from entering your living space and posing health hazards. Flat or lack of venting violates plumbing codes, but you can avoid these mishaps in the first place when you enlist plumbing services.

Here's What Our Customers Are Saying About Us.
This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
