Codes & Standards Discussion Forum 

Welcome to the ICC Codes & Standards Discussion Forum

The Code Council has revisited how best to provide an online, professional Discussion Forum and area within the website that has a sense of community – where Members and nonmembers can provide input and exchange ideas with their peers in the industry. The new Codes & Standards Discussion Forum does just that, as it allows Registered Website Users and ICC Members to discuss the I-Codes in an online community.

It would pass inspection here if you put a safety pan and drain under it. T&P and pan drain separately to approved location like mop sink or outside.

I assume the ceiling is a drop ceiling? If not, need access for maintenance and change out.

Pardon me. I didn''t think about this being a restaurant. We didn''t talk about size of the water heater. The location would be fine, the plywood might be a little light if this is more than a 10 gallon.

I would suggest a insta-hot under the sinks, I am assuming that this is for the restroom sinks only. :p

Insta-hots are the bomb. No location problem, no T&P drain, no wasted energy heating unused water.

Excellent insight Colorado Dave.

A Restaurant is going to need hot water for the kitchen. Putting the hot water heater in the attic is fine as long as you provide access to it.

Putting in a insta-hot is fine as long as it is sized to handle the hot water requirements. And if it is under the sink make sure the accessibility requirements are met.
(Wheelchair clearances).
