Default Expansion tank research

I'm doing some research to see if any of you are seeing your communities adapt the new code already for supporting expansion tanks other than just hanging from a pipe? If so, what area are you in? We are seeing some areas in Virginia implementing this code now.

Nothing has been implemented around Indiana that I am aware of but its just common sense to support the tank one way or another....

Are they expecting you to mount the thing to a side wall with some kind of expensive manufactured wall clamp???


I prefer just hanging it on strapping or wire down from the above beams or putting a support leg down the the heater.......
