Code Check Plumbing & Mechanical 4th Edition is an illustrated guide to common code questions in residential plumbing, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. The book emphasizes the safety principles that are at the heart of the codes for these systems.

The primary code used in this book is the 2009 edition of the International Residential Code for One- and Two-Family Dwellings, published by the International Code Council (ICC). It is the most widely used residential code in the United States.

The other major codes referenced here are the 2009 Uniform Plumbing Code and 2009 Uniform Mechanical Code, published by the International Association of Plumbing & Mechanical Code, (IAPMO). For most topics, these different codes are in agreement. Each of these codes also references standards, many of which are maintained by the organizations in Table 2 (T2).

Additional codes for specialized items are listed in T1. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) publishes several of these. They also maintain NFPA 54: National Fuel Gas Code, which forms the basis of the fuel gas provisions in the IRC, UPC, and UMC.

The 2009 cycle of codes is likely to remain in effect in most areas for at last 3 or 4 years after the cover date. Energy codes, very greatly from one area to another, and may modify or overrule the code requirements shown in this book. Before beginning any project, check with your local building department to determine the codes that apply in your area.
