    You[ve got to be kidding. The IPC is a "do whatever you want to" code. They cancelled their merger with the UPC when they discovered what they would have to do under the UPC.

    You live in mass. They have their own code. It's closer to the old BOCA code than anything else. At any rate, you need to hire a plumber. Mass won't allow you to do your own plumbing.
