All private properties - residential, commercial, and industrial - built on or before January 1, 1994, served by the City of Morgan Hill water utility must abide by the Plumbing Fixture Retrofit Regulations 13.04.335. All existing residential, commercial, and industrial buildings shall, at the time of sale, be inspected. Any plumbing fixtures not in compliance will need to be updated exclusively with high efficiency plumbing fixtures.
Showerheads, toilets, and urinals that were manufactured in 1993 or earlier need to be replaced with the new high efficiency fixtures (USEPA WaterSense). The provisions of this chapter shall apply to showers, toilets, and urinals whenever the title to real property is conveyed from the seller to the buyer, for consideration, by means of a grant deed.
