Non-compliant Plumbing Fixtures - California civil code 1101.1 – 1101.8 calls for all non-compliant plumbing fixtures to be replaced with water-conservation fixtures by January 1, 2017.
Non-compliant fixtures are defined as follows:
- Toilets that use more than 1.6 gal/flush
- Urinals that use more than 1 gal/flush
- Showerheads that have a flow capacity more 2.5 gal/min
- Interior faucets that have a flow capacity more 2.2 gal/min
Non-compliant fixtures may need to be replace prior to this date in order to get permit approval for certain building alterations or improvements.
When selling, the seller must disclose to the buyer this requirement and, whether the property includes any noncompliant plumbing fixtures.
Plan ahead and budget for these plumbing upgrades. I'll be happy to recommend a good plumber.
