Plumbing Code Requirements | Dial Up Plumbing Services

Repairs and installs performed on your own might be an excellent way to save time and money. However, without proper planning, you risk violating the plumbing code.

This can reduce the effectiveness of your plumbing—or even prevent it from functioning at all. Violations of code might potentially create considerable complications down the road if you want to sell your home or make significant modifications.

Prompt Service. Peace of Mind.
