In this review, we’ll hit the most important and significant changes to the UPC as it applies to New Mexico plumbers.

We’ll address storm drainage requirements for vertical conductors and leaders, and installing and testing fuel gas piping accurately.

We’ll also talk about working in specialty systems, such as health care facilities that require medical gas and vacuum piping systems. Firestop protection will also be addressed, and we’ll spend some time talking about alternate sources of water for non potable applications, including gray water systems. Chapter 17 will cover a specific types of alternate water source, the rainwater catchment system for non potable purposes.
