California Building Officials (CALBO) made an interpretation on how to apply these legislative requirements (when it comes to home repairs that also require permits by City codes). This legislative analysis is a result of the work of CALBO; furthermore it is how the City of Pismo Beach will apply the legislative requirements. The analysis by CALBO, as followed by the City, will aid the public in retaining the ability to maintain their properties without the requirement of retrofitting their plumbing fixtures; which will curtail permit avoidance and assist property owners in obtaining the proper permits for their repairs.
Noncompliant plumbing fixtures are defined as:1. Any toilet manufactured for use more than 1.6 gallons of water per flush2. Any urinal manufactured for use more than 1 gallon of water per flush3. Any showerhead manufactured to have a flow capacity of more than 2.5 gallons of water per minute4. Any interior faucet that emits more than 2.2 gallons of water per minute
Water-conserving plumbing fixture is defined as;Any fixture that is in compliance with current building standards applicable to a newly constructed real property of the same type.
