Farmers Branch TX water heater requirements
Updated September 1, 2011
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 Farmers Branch TX licensed master plumber and inspected by a licensed plumbing inspector.
The City of Farmers Branch Texas follows the 2006 International Plumbing Code. All water heaters require a drain pan with the drain line run to the outside. If a drain line cannot be run to the outside then no drain pan is required.
