In our Chapter 1 review of the course, we will cover the general scope of the UPC, along with organization and enforcement, and how violations and penalties are handled. We’ll also talk about inspections, maintenance, repairs and alterations, and how to handle it when two relevant codes conflict. Chapter 2 will review changes to the definitions in the Code.

We’ll also address minimum standards for the materials used in plumbing construction and repair. It also covers some alternate materials and methods that may be used. It covers working in flood hazard areas, handling wastes, and preventative measures to ensure the functionality of a plumbed system.

Water supply and distribution will be addressed in Chapter 6, including temperature and backflow requirements, acceptable materials to use, and the appropriate size of pipe for various situations.  Then, we’ll review updates to the various types of drainage systems, the appropriate materials to use for them, minimum pipe sizes and maximum fixture units. It addresses the use of specific materials such as brass, cast-iron, copper, and galvanized steel. We’ll also review the changes to Chapter 8, which addresses indirect wastes from restaurants and similar establishments.
