    Default Exposed plumbing in closet

    Is there anything against having exposed supply plumbing and waste plumbing in the ceiling of a closet? I don't know why they did it but they did it.

    I can't think of any reason it would be a problem.

    But!!!!

    The PEX is not supported properly and it could be easily damaged by something being pushed up against it. The lines really need to be protected from damage.

    In addition to what Scott said, the ceiling needs to be sealed around those pipes.

    RS: I would say, right off hand, that common sense would prohibit an installation like that . . .

    Did the owner have a sign like this posted on the front door?

    Look honey we can hang more clothes up here on this plastic thingy.

    If it weren't for lawyers, we would never need them.
