City of Highland Park TX water heater requirements
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 Highland Park TX licensed master plumber and inspected by a licensed plumbing inspector.
Highland Park Texas Water Heater Installation Requirements:
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 Wags valve or other approved similar technology is required.
