TPR valve from the emergency forum

Hi again gentlemen, here is my thought, Mike made a valid point with his link to an approved pvc drain line. If it was me, I would check the line, chances are that if the pvc line is threaded on one end it is an approved line. If it has a threaded adaptor attached chances are it is not approved. Again, local code will always prevail, and if you don’t live there you won’t know.

The only PVC TPR lines I have seen are the preformed ones that meet the standard for discharge piping.

Regular PVC is not allowed anywhere as far as I know.

They are less than $10 so you can see why they get used. One threaded connection and done.

As I said, thanks for the link, now I have to see if they can be used here in Mt. of course our codes are far and few between.

It might just be easiest to call your local AHJ

I suspect the manufactured pvc units are approved due to them being manufactured with brass fittings and not pvc fittings which will fail under pressure (pun intended).

PS… Thanks for playing by the rules regarding the Emergency thread!

You haven’t been here long enough to remember these, but you get one anyway…

Thanks, I just think we need to remember it’s us against the world, and there is a big damn world out there.

Gotta go, it is time for a Resident Evil marathon.
