Construction Performance Guidelines
FAUCET OR FIXTURE IS LEAKING
Faucets or plumbing fixtures shall not leak, drip or run on when fully closed or shut off.
One-Year - Work and Materials. · Damage resulting from improper maintenance, normal wear and tear, or additions, deletions or alterations made by the homeowner is excluded from the statutory warranty. · Secondary damage caused by defects, such as property damage or personal injury, is excluded from the statutory warranty.
Faucets or fixtures not meeting the acceptable performance shall be repaired.
Confirm proper operation of faucets and fixtures during the PDI and record any malfunction on the PDI Form, to avoid any dispute about whether the damage was caused by the builder. Some manufacturers of plumbing products offer warranties on their products that extend beyond the one-year statutory warranty. If a leak occurs after the one-year statutory warranty, service may be available from the manufacturer.
