This is a continuing story from this thread.
I sent an e-mail to the head of the city plumbing dept. regarding this install being improper. I got a response today saying that the city does indeed allow this and it is widely accepted in installations below grade (this is in a basement). Although I disagree, they are the AHJ, at least in the city limits.
How would you guys write up something like this? Would you say the installation is improper, but the AHJ says it is OK? Or would you just say the installation meets their approval? I’ve just never had to deal with a city official saying something is right when the code says it isn’t.
I have saved a copy of the e-mail in my files in case it is needed in the future.
I just want some other opinions on this, and any stories out there regarding other’s battles with AHJ’s.
