Why did I receive a plumbing code violation?

Plumbing code violations are initiated for many different reasons, and they can be issued for both commercial and residential properties. Plumbing code violations are generally given on commercial buildings during routine inspections, building renovations, or if someone files a formal complaint on an older building. Residences can receive plumbing violations for renovations without a permit, illegal plumbing like drains, or if tenants or neighbors complain.

What is the Uniform Plumbing Code?

The Uniform Plumbing Code is a set of MINIMUM standards set forth by building officials to protect your health and safety. The city of San Francisco has adopted this code and added its own stipulations. Each city on the peninsula can also make an addendum to the code depending on their city’s requirements. 

These codes may not always seem fair or make sense to you as a home or business owner, but they are enforced by the cities of the San Francisco Peninsula for your protection!


Plumbing Code Violations FAQs

For example, the P-trap, which is the trap located underneath the kitchen and bathroom sinks, is there to prevent sewer gases from entering your home or business. Sewer gas doesn’t just make you nauseous; it can carry disease and cause death. The Uniform Plumbing Code also requires the trap to be a minimum of 17 gauges thick.

If plumbers install low-quality products in your home, such as a faulty p-trap, you can have significant issues in your home. Without being to code, water from your drains goes where it shouldn’t or because gas lines that run from your property have problems.

Usually, plumbing code violations occur because of two primary issues. The first reason plumbing code violations may occur is the result of old plumbing that is not updated, safe, or sanitary. Plumbing code violations may also stem from plumbing that is not installed correctly.
