The determination arose from the decision made by the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for building work that included the installation of a shower unit. I note the consent was amended to remove the shower unit, and a code compliance certificate was subsequently issued. The authority considered the shower unit to be a sanitary fixture and was not satisfied that the unit complied with Clauses B2 and G12 of the Building Code. The authority's concerns relate to the durability of reinforced plasticized polyvinyl chloride hoses used in the shower unit. I consider the matter to be determined is whether the shower unit as installed complies with the Building Code. In this determination the term the shower unit includes the shower cabinet and doors, the plumbing components, and connections to water supply and waste services.
