When I looked at your link it appeared that your village recently adopted the overall
Illinois plumbing code. Maybe I read it wrong, but Section 890 of the state code appears
to allow PEX. Are you saying that your village adopted the state code and then
amended it to be more restrictive re: PEX?
If so, do you know why?
They sell plumbing and electrical parts and material that, by code, you
need to have a permit to install. If you had to show your permit or
license to buy the stuff they would go out of business.
Besides, the people in Morton Grove that buy pex do so just to make
spray things for their pool, they would never consider doing a job not

No, that's not it. The vast majority of plumbers licensed to work in
Illinois live in the village of Morton Grove. Every inch of PEX that
they buy locally is carried out of the village and used on jobs in
villages, towns and cities where the planning boards actually have a
clue. I've heard that they are escorted out of town by the code police
after every purchase.
