Consequences Violating Plumbing CodeThere was once a time in this country when the building of homes or businesses went unmonitored. There existed an “anything goes” approach toward materials and construction procedures, where health and safety concerns were nearly non-existent. Thankfully, times have changed and no one in the plumbing industry understands, values, and respects the need for specific plumbing installation codes more than your Amarillo plumbers at Pratt Plumbing.

Plumbing Codes Guide Health & Safety

Serious consequences can occur if plumbing is installed incorrectly or plumbing code violations take place during construction, remodeling, or even during minor repairs. Among the problems that you may find yourself facing are backups that risk health, leaks that cause further expensive water damage, and the burdensome inconvenience of not having access to your water for cooking, cleaning, or hygiene. If plumbing is incorrectly installed near electrical wiring or outlets, in a bathroom or kitchen for example, a dangerous contact or leak can lead to serious risk of deadly electric shock.

A High Price for Violations

Plumbing codes exist to ensure that only safe, approved techniques and materials are used by trained experts in the installation of new construction, repairs, or plumbing remodeling work. Unscrupulous plumbers or even do-it-yourselfers need to be aware that a presumed cost-savings up front may result in legal costs and possibly health or injury costs if violations of the plumbing code have occurred. Penalties for code violation can include fines, daily fines for the duration of the existing violation, and revocation of expensive building permits.

We have recently completed a remodel of an 80 year old house and we used Pratt Plumbing for all of the plumbing renovation. Pratt was great in all respects: their ideas, their work, their timeliness, their prompt attention to details and follow through all were and continue to be of the highest caliber. Their invoices are reasonable and we would recommend Pratt Plumbing to anyone in need of minor or major plumbing work.
