Thank you, sir, for posting this!!!!! So many plumbers quake when the mere name of an inspector is mentioned. I have always been of the mindset that the inspector is an enforcer of existing code. They do not have the autonomy to implement their own, without some documented proof from the local jurisdiction. It is very reassuring, to me personally, to hear one of "you" guys acknowledge what their responsibility is. Thanks again, sir.
Inspectors are only supposed to enforce code, not write it or interpret it. We all know all Inspectors have one thing or another that they enforce more than others but it shouldn't be anything that isn't in the book.

Sometimes it's not worth arguing. I would press the issue if it was an isolated incident but it's becoming more and more of a theme at least around here. Even the supply house guys are pushing the use of CPVC vs the PVC for flue gas appliances. As a matter of fact the Crown Phantom series of condesing boilers come factory with a manditory 3' piece of CPVC for the vent before you convert to regular PVC.
