  • New installation requirements for Thermal Fluid Heaters.
  • New temperature rating requirements for discharge piping and fittings.
  • Section 3.2.6 has been restructured into a tabular format.
  • New language requiring the manufacturer’s correction factor used in pressure testing be recorded on the valve repair document in paragraph 4.8.5.4 i).
  • Language in Section 4.7.4 has been simplified for clarity.
