About

Overview

Sorting through a key code – whether it is the INTERNATIONAL PLUMBING, MECHANICAL, OR FUEL GAS CODES® - can be a daunting task. So when a code update occurs, you may feel even more overwhelmed. Fortunately, there is a resource that will break down all three of these codes so that readers can easily identify key changes and their real-world applications. SIGNIFICANT CHANGES TO THE INTERNATIONAL PLUMBING CODE®, INTERNATIONAL MECHANICAL® CODE AND INTERNATIONAL FUEL GAS CODE® 2012 edition addresses more than 125 of the most crucial changes contained in these codes. Each change analysis features the affected code sections and identifies the type of change: newly added text, a modification of the existing language, or deleted text. Accompanying each change are detailed illustrations and practical examples, which clarify some of the technical jargon and make the content more relevant. The ebook's attention to detail, its logical organization, and its thorough yet concise coverage all make it an ideal tool for transitioning from the 2009 codes to the new 2012 versions.
