This four-day program is a comprehensive review of Chapters 25-33 of the 2015 International Residential Code. It includes examples, exercises and case studies designed to illustrate daily practices performed by a Residential Plumbing Inspector or Plans Examiner. Material includes a review of how the UCC amends certain provision of the IRC, especially with regard to residential alterations and exclusions.
Hydraulics, pneumatics and how water, air and gases interact to make a plumbing system work properly are explored and common plumbing materials such as piping and fittings are introduced. Building permit issuance is discussed with an emphasis placed on the most important issues to be addressed and resolve during the review process.
Interactive learning will be implemented through conducting virtual inspections. A checklist of critical issues associated with plumbing installations will also be developed. Emphasis will be placed on addressing plumbing and sprinkler system installation issues that should be resolved at the permit application stage of the project.
