    Default No - Exterior Faucets

    First time I ran across this.

    New house (2007) had no exterior faucets!!??

    Usually there are at least two hose bibs!!!

    Does plumbing code require exterior faucets?

    Charles,

    I'm not seeing a Requirement in IRC 2003. A lot of requirements on how to but nothing on required.

    Just another reason codes are "minimums".
