Province of New Brunswick adopts 2010 National Plumbing Code

NBBPA members:

The Province of New Brunswick adopted 2010 NPC on October 1st, 2014 with changes to Premise Isolation and a few other related backflow items. If you did not receive the letter from Technical Inspection Services please email me at and I will send you the documentation.

Contractors ensure that you check with the Authority having jurisdiction when working in New Brunswick as there could be some difference between requirements of this new code adoption and some Municipal By-laws.

Thank you.

  1. I had a call today from a municipal employee voicing his concerns about allowing a dual check as Premise Isolation for single family dwellings with access to an auxiliary water supply(not directly connected). His main concern is based on experience where hose connections were provided on both systems and it only takes someone to hook up a hose to make the two systems connected. Currently they require a RP and it has to be tested yearly which protects the Municipal distribution system from the auxiliary water supply. Your thoughts?

  2. A positive change is: states, “in addition to the backflow preventer required by this Subsection for buildings or facilities where a potentially moderate health hazard may be caused by backflow, the potable water system shall be provided with premise isolation by the installation of a double check valve assembly backflow preventer.”
    The previous regulation did not contain this requirement.
