In this 6-hour course, we’ll cover the most significant changes to the UPC that Kansas plumbers need to be familiar with. This includes updates to the administration and definitions of the code, as well as the changes made to specific chapters.

In general regulations, we’ll address minimum standards for the materials used in plumbing construction and repair, and we’ll cover some alternate materials and methods that may be used. The chapter will also cover working in flood hazard areas, handling wastes, and preventative measures to ensure the functionality of a plumbed system.

Chapter 5 will address working with water heaters. This includes inspection requirements, safety devices, and various types of water heaters, as well as instruction for installing water heaters in special locations.

Finally, we’ll talk about the requirements for sanitary drainage, necessary for certain facilities, as well as indirect wastes from operations such as food, beverage, and bar establishments. We’ll close with a discussion of how these changes affect plumbers and their work.

Very educational course

I was surprised at the level of detail and explanation provided with each instance of code change. Some more relevant graphics or diagrams may have increased the overall value of the class.
