: The are usually illegal because the building deparments figure that it would be too easy for a homeowner to make a DIY addition to the system, without getting a permit or inspection. The biggest problem with dead ends that I have found is that they have a tendency to rust out due to the stagnant water.

Dead ends prevent flushing and sanitizing and provide an area for the growth of bacteria. And pressure changes have no effect on dead ends.
