UPC section 601.1 is amended to read as follows:

601.1 General. Each plumbing fixture shall be provided with an adequate supply of potable running water piped to it in an approved manner, so arranged as to flush and keep the fixture in a clean and sanitary condition without danger of backflow or cross-connection. Water closets and urinals shall be flushed by means of an approved flush tank or flushometer valve.

Exception: Listed fixtures that do not require water for their operation and are not connected to the water supply.

601.1.1 Hot Water Required. In occupancies where plumbing fixtures are installed for private use, hot water shall be required for bathing, washing, laundry, cooking purposes, dishwashing, and maintenance. In occupancies where plumbing fixtures are installed for public use, hot water shall be required for bathing and washing purposes. This requirement shall not supersede the requirements for individual temperature control limitations for public lavatories, bidets, bathtubs, whirlpool bathtubs, and shower control valves.

601.1.2 Hot Water Recirculation. Hot water supply systems in four-story buildings or higher, or buildings where the developed length of hot water piping from the source of hot water supply to the farthest fixture supplied exceeds 100 feet, shall be of the return circulation type.
