PMG

Plumbing, Mechanical, Fuel Gas,

Swimming Pool & Spa, and Private Sewage Disposal

The Code Council uses the acronym PMG to refer to its plumbing, mechanical, fuel gas, swimming pool & spa, and private sewage disposal codes.

The PMG codes are a vital part of a complete building safety system. When adopted as a family of codes, alongside the other I-Codes, they provide a consistent system of regulations that designers, builders, and regulators can rely on around the world.
