    The roof will miss it and it never rains in SoCal...at least not enough to bother with this.

    This is high end!

    I'm curious from hearing about all the water restrictions; did the rain suspend the fines?

    And how do they achieve the flow rate for the flushometer valve; is this a special application for home use?

    Well it's not like it's a yard drain. Perhaps I should have asked the planning dept. what the setback requirement is for a urinal. There's plenty of outdoor sinks, outdoor showers and one outdoor urinal in southern California. But hey now, this could start a trend.

    Still a code violation, being such a code stickler you should know that. So you only enforce the codes you agree with?

    Is this an impersonation of A Well-Known Member? I wonder how one becomes a Well-Known Member.

    Heavy rains can cause sewage treatment plant overflows
    during Heavy rain, the amount of stormwater entering a sewer system can be overwhelming for the pipes and the treatment plant. This leads to sewer/stormwater overflows, which pollute rivers, streams and the ocean, to which they flow. These overflows contain not only stormwater, but also untreated human and industrial waste, toxic materials, and debris.

    When I find the outdoor sinks for BBQ islands I ask for a cover. When I find yard drains hitting the sanitary sewer I ask them to correct it. When I find commercial properties pouring bad stuff in a sink I deal with it. But this urinal was an exceptionaly good idea that has negligible impact. Not to mention that I was there for a PV inspection.

    The truth is that I show you what I do enforce and not what I do not enforce, which amounts to a lot. That's just the life of an inspector in a territory like mine. Here lately I haven't posted much of anything but trust me, not much has changed. If I tried to enforce all of the code I wouldn't get far from the office. My hope is to catch what is worth the visit....doing that can hit a 100 corrections in a day.

    Consider this Mark, your jurisdiction is remarkably different from mine. I'm pretty sure that I could enforce way more code with far less effort there.

    There is an entity skulking around here with Well-Known Member as the status under the name. I haven't seen that before.

    Mark Handler,
    If this installation had more of a roof over the area, would the installation be compliant?

    If the rain water Is kept out of the sanitary sewer, and if plumb'd correctly then yes.
