12.7.1 - Fire Safety

Possible Ignition source noted

 Noted Water heater install and possible ignition sources within 18 inches of garage floor. 


After visual inspection and technical data research Inspector was unable to determine if installed water heater meets safety requirements for ignition source as stated below in WAC regulations and FVIR compliance. (Flammable vapor ignition resistance)  

While this condition is flagged as a possible fire safety hazard it is suggested that homeowner verify with Installer, manufacturer  and / or local code enforcement officials as necessary to determine proper installation and local code requirements.


*Washington State Inspector Standards of Practice   WAC 308-408C-180 require the inspector to report as a fire hazard the presence of any ignition source (gas and electric water heaters, electrical receptacles, electronic air cleaners, motors of installed appliances, etc) that is within 18 inches of the garage floor.
