Condo conversion always seems to bring the city inspectors out of the woodwork, but having the city inspect the building to make sure it meets minimum code standards is part of the process of a condo conversion. During a San Francisco condo conversion, expect a visit from the city's general building inspector, the electrical inspector, and the plumbing inspector. After the inspection, a report will be provided detailing the deficiencies that need to be corrected. Most plumbing correction items concern life and safety issues. For example, in the city of San Francisco, a water heater has to be installed with earthquake restraints and proper flueing. In garage areas, it must also be 18 inches above the floor. Drain piping has to be properly installed as well, providing a safe and sanitary system by using approved materials. Water piping also has to be installed properly, with emergency shut off valves and backflow protection where needed. In addition, gas valves for stoves must be in accessible locations and gas appliances must be installed to accommodate this.
