Proposal to Require Insulation of Hot Water Piping Systems

01/08/2014 |

A new proposal requires the insulation of hot water piping in new buildings.

A new proposal requiring the insulation of hot water piping in new buildings was recently submitted to the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO). The proposal was created by the United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipefitting Industry (UA) and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC).

Many Americans waste millions of gallons of water by letting water run until it’s hot enough for use in showers and sinks. To curtail this waste in new buildings, NRDC and the UA proposed that the 2015 edition of IAPMO ‘s Uniform Plumbing Code require insulation of all hot water piping systems such as those serving lavatories, showers, dishwashers, and kitchen sinks. The Uniform Plumbing Code is the model for local and state plumbing codes now in force in at least 19 states.
