Allen Water Heater Installation
Effective September 2007, the Texas State Legislature enacted into the Plumbing License Law additional wording to specifically include water heaters in their list of plumbing fixtures, required by law, to have a plumbing permit issued prior to installation. In addition, the law provides that such installations be done according to current codes by an Allen TX licensed water heater technician and inspected by a licensed plumbing inspector.

Water Heater installations shall be subject to the following: All water heaters, including those installed in garages shall have a pan beneath them. All waters heaters installed in the garage, gas or electric, new or replacement must be elevated to where the ignition source is at least 18” above the floor. Pan drains should terminate outside the building if possible. Where this is not possible, a boiler drain should be installed in the pan outlet.
