For what I know they are even required if the whole house has an anti-scaled device installed. They have them here on group homes so clients don't chance being burned at any hot water faucet.
I heard about the requirement about 3 years ago. They are only required on new construction or remolds... (if it's being inspected ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif) ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif) )
