    UPC in Texas

    Terry, the information that was posted on 7-06-10 about the codes adopted in Texas were incorrect. The Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners recognizes the 2006 editions of the UPC, IPC, & IFGC which means each city or town in the state can either adopt the UPC or IPC/IFGC regardless of edition.

    Louisiana State Plumbing Code

    I hope I'm allowed to post this.

    Here is Louisiana State Plumbing Code Title 51.
    http://laphcc.org/documents/2013LouisianaStatePlumbingcode-Title51.pdf

    And this pdf shows some of the changes made for 2013. (It's worth looking at because some of the images used are unintentionally funny- starting with the image on page 15). Page 21 has an interesting toilet bicycle image.
    http://new.dhh.louisiana.gov/assets/oph/Center-EH/engineering/Louisiana_State_Plumbing_Code_2013.pdf

    Some notes:
    Louisiana no longer allows Air Admittance Valves.
    The maximum distance from a 2" trap to the vent has been reduced from 8' to 6'.

    Also, I found this link that fills in some of the blanks on states that are missing:
    http://www.tests.com/State-Plumbing-Codes-License
    Arkansas uses IPC
    California is based on UPC
    Colorado uses IPC
    Guam uses IPC
    Hawaii uses UPC
    Idaho uses IPC
    Indiana uses the Indiana Plumbing Code and as of 2012 used the 2006 IPC second printing
    Kansas uses IPC
    Maryland uses IPC
    Massachusetts uses UPC, 248 CMR 10.00.
    Minnesota uses Minnesota Plumbing Code
    Missouri uses UPC
    Montana uses UPC
    Nebraska uses IPC
    Nevada uses IPC
    New Jersey uses NSPC
    New Mexico uses New Mexico Plumbing Code based on UPC
    North Dakota uses IPC
    Oregon uses Oregon Specialty Plumbing Code based on UPC
    South Dakota uses UPC
    Washington uses UPC

    I could be wrong on some of these, but I took them from websites. One source said Indiana uses UPC but another said specifically the IPC 2006 second printing.
