    I have a customer who is looking for a plumbing code reference book. I was just wondering if any of you have any recomendations.

    Why does he want it? If for code questions, then he needs the one for your area, along with any local amendments the building department has added. Therefore, the local building department is usually a good source for it.

    Thanks for the reply. Thats what I told him, but I was just making sure there wasn't a general reference out there somewhere.

    Check the reference desk at your local library. They usually have the applicable code books on hand.

    If he's a homeowner, I'd start with the Codecheck series. It's written in layman terms. However, I wouldn't do ANYTHING before showing your design and plans to your inspector.

    If yr not planning to get the deal inspected, then you should read and learn the UPC. Plumbeat Emptor.
