Plumbing systems

Source:  Your Home Inspection Guide-William L. Ventolo

The plumbing system in a house is actually a number of separate systems, each with a special function.

The water supply system-drainage system-vent piping system waste/collecting system & house connection pipe system.

Installation of all plumbing is governed by strict codes.  Local codes may have their own plumbing sections, but almost all are based on the Uniform Plumbing Code, published by the International Association of Plumbing & Mechanical Officials (IAPMO).  You will find the IAMPMO stamp of approval on many fixtures & fittings.
