Associated Building Inspections - Commercial Building Inspections - Lancaster County, PA

Plumbing Submittals

The submittal of all commercial plumbing documents should include a review of the plumbing section of form ABI-2. Any portion of the plumbing section that is applicable to your project should be checked, completed and thorough information for that item shall be supplied.

Any items that are not applicable should be checked off in the N/A column.

The plumbing submission shall include any and all plumbing requirements from other construction disciplines.

The applicant shall review the requirements for tempered water at showers and accessible hand washing facilities. The applicant shall also review Chapter 11 of the IBC as well as Chapter 6 of the ANSI A117 standard as to the requirements for accessible plumbing facilities.

Plumbing plans shall be of sufficient detail to permit a complete understanding of the scope of your project. Riser diagrams for pressure and DWV lines shall be provided. Trap primers, oil separators, and grease trap requirements shall be reviewed and supplied with pertinent details when applicable.

Plumbing plans should acknowledge the required testing as provided by the Code.

Remember that the more detailed your plan submission, the more expedient the plan review process is, resulting in a quicker turn around time with less plan review comments requiring responses. You can not provide too much detail, but you can provide too little.
