If you're remodeling your home and you're doing any work which might affect the plumbing, you'll have to adhere to your local plumbing codes. Remodeling work which would fall under the guidelines of local plumbing codes could include something as simple as installing a new toilet fixture in your bathroom to a more complicated project like adding a new bathroom to your home. Depending on the complexity of the project, you may have to draw up plans and have your local building department approve those plans. For those areas governed by plumbing, the plumbing inspector at your local building department has the authority to interpret the code and decide whether a change meets current plumbing codes or not.
