Are you planning on installing any new fixtures in your home in the near future? If you're putting in a bidet or a new showerhead, check out the new fixture related codes which could affect your remodel. New fixture related codes require a temperature-sensing device for bidets to keep the water from going over 110 degrees Fahrenheit. This new code will ensure you keep your backside from scalding from the hot water. For low flow showerhead users, there's good news. Now you can use a 1-1/2” diameter trap in your shower stall instead of the old 2” diameter trap required in the old code.
