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.

When you turn to A.M. Plumbing & Rooter, you can have peace of mind knowing your plumbing system remains safe, efficient, and up-to-code. We undergo regular training and stay abreast of the latest trends to ensure nothing but the best for your needs. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
