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.

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.

NYC revised the 1938 code in 1968 and the 68 code was amazing .

Then the best politicians money could buy decided to lower the standards to allow untrained people to install inferior and dangerous products to be used in multi family homes.

The old saying if something is not broke why fix it?

As of 2016, Louisiana no longer has it's own plumbing code. It was reverted to IPC 2012.
