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 a Wylie TX water heater technician and inspected by a licensed plumbing inspector.
Water Heater Installation Requirements In Wylie
The City of Wylie Texas follows the 2006 International Plumbing Code.
Additional requirements include that a drain pan is required on all water heater installations. If the water heater pan cannot be piped to the outside, a hose bib on the pan opening can be used. This will enable the occupant to attach a hose and run it to the outside. Sediment traps are required on all gas lines for water heater installations.
