This is the second of two courses covering Iowa's adoption of the UPC and their amendments to it. In this course, we'll cover Chapters 6 through 17. For Chapters 1 through 6, see the Iowa 2 Hour 2016 Plumbing Code Class Part 1.
In this course, we'll talk about changes to the water supply and distribution regulations, including pipes, tubes, and fittings suitable for use. We'll also look at how that affects plumbers directly in the course of their work. We'll review the newest standards for lead content in materials, and for water heater connectors, before we address expansion tanks, temperature and pressure-relief valves.
Chapters 7 and 8 will focus on cleanouts, discharge lines, and condensate wastes. We'll also cover new code sections applicable to the installation, construction, alteration, and repair of non potable rainwater catchment systems.
After that, the remaining changes we'll cover include rules affecting circuit venting, health care facilities, system design, and alternative water sources for non potable applications. We'll conclude the course with a look at the referenced standards of Chapter 17.
