I don’t know about water, but gas piping is not allowed to have unions hidden 
in a wall.

Just to follow up with this – after reviewing with the code inspector, it was 
the plumbing code requirement they were thinking of – not applicable to 
sprinklers. (I know you all have been on pins and needles!)

I recently had an inspector say that all threaded union fittings must be 
accessible (access panel provided for union behind sheet rock). I have hear 
that this is a requirement for domestic water piping, but I have never heard 
about this for fire sprinklers. Does this ring a bell with anyone? 

 

Thanks!
