While some people may be able to do their own plumbing repairs or modifications, it can sometimes lead to violations of the plumbing code. You should not do this type of work yourself.
INSUFFICIENT SPACE AROUND THE TOILET
You must have enough space around the toilet to meet the plumbing code. There must be enough space between appliances, sinks, cabinets, and other items.
ILLEGAL USE OF IMPROPER MATERIALS
It is important to know the proper materials to use for plumbing work. Masking tape and glue are not allowed to be used to fix cracks or holes.
PLUGGED WATER RELIEF VALVES MISSING OR PLUGGED
Water heaters have safety devices to prevent water heater disasters. Water relief valves may leak as a water heater age. Some people put a plug around the valve to stop water escaping. This could cause your water heater to explode.
DRAINAGE PIE SLOPING
To allow water to drain, drainpipes should slope. Back-flow can occur if the slope is too steep. This is when sewage water returns to your home.
