City Code Violations

You may not like it, but cities have tough building codes for public safety purposes. If you’ve been hit by city code violations for your plumbing, call experienced plumbers in Philadelphia County, PA. Whether you want to apply for a permit or assess your home for infractions of the plumbing code Philadelphia authorities may catch, call us today.

What Are City Code Violations?

Plumbing code violations vary by municipality, even in different parts of the Philadelphia area. However, plumbing code violations typically include the following:

  • Drainpipes are not sloped enough toward the sewer main.
  • You need more clean-outs for your outdated plumbing system.
  • Two or more pipes are not properly joined.
  • The toilet in your older home isn’t far enough from the wall (Most codes call for toilets to sit at least 15″ from the walls.)
  • Insufficient water pressure.
  • Bathroom fans that vent into a closed space such as the attic.

You Received City Code Violations, Now What?

If you need plumbing repairs for code violations, make sure to hire licensed, insured, and local plumbers such as those at Guaranteed. When you find a notification of a plumbing violation, that means the city believes your plumbing system doesn’t comply with the Uniform Plumbing Code.

It can take time and money to fix Uniform plumbing code violations, but it will leave your family safer and increase the value of your home. Even if the problem resulted from incorrect installations before you moved in, it’s now your responsibility to fix it.

What’s the Uniform Plumbing Code, Anyway?

Created by the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials, the International Plumbing Code forms the basis of many municipal standards — the local Uniform Plumbing Code. These regulations allow for standardized practices that improve public health and safety.

Although the code changes focus on sanitary practices, they also account for new technology that makes plumbing systems more efficient.
