This month’s special guest will be Steve Tag from Simpson Strong Tie will present new products and their code applications for plumbing. This is covered under section 890.150 of our state plumbing code “In the process of installing or repairing any part of a plumbing system, the floors, walls, ceilings, tile work, or any other part of the building or premises which must be changed, altered or replaced shall be left in a safe structural condition so as not to pose a health or safety hazard.

Many times the framing has passed inspection, only to have the plumber, electrician or HVAC people destroy it and think it is the carpenters responsibility to repair it. The State plumbing code is very clear that it is the PLUMBERS responsibility to leave the structure safe and healthy.

This is also covered under the IRC as well. Drilling and notching are needed to install plumbing pipes so attend this month’s meeting to learn the proper way to repair the framing damage caused by installing plumbing.
