Can a slip joint pipe connection be concealed in a wall?
Sunday, October 25, 2020
A slip joint can only be concealed in a wall if a 12” minimum access panel is provided. “Fixtures with concealed slip-joint connections shall be provided with an access panel or utility space not less than 12 inches (305mm) in its smallest dimension or other approved arrangement so as to provide access to the slip joint connections for inspection and repair,” according the International Plumbing Code (IPC 405.8) and the Florida Plumbing Code.
