Remodel Code

I'm planning to replace galvanized piping (with Pex A) and am wondering if the code for remodeling is the same as new construction code - referring to the Uniform Plumbing Code.

ASFIK yes... Same.

They want you to upgrade to new codes... Your local municipal may vary though. Certain things are grandfathered but it depends how much you touch...

I have never heard of any "remodel" code in any discipline. Minor repairs can usually (not always, depending on the repair and the jurisdiction) be done to the standards of the code in effect when originally constructed but replacing the piping system is NOT a repair, it is new construction and so would have to conform to current codes in you local jurisdiction.
