Amazing!!! Makes one glad to not be in the Commonwealth of MA. :)
Searched and it implies the online list is up-to-date and if it ain't
there, it ain't approved. Didn't see anything about how to request
approval for a nonlisted device...
And, of course, the plumber assuming he is licensed can't afford to
violate local Code/regulation so can't blame him...
Still hard to understand the disconnect between the list and stocking
distributor -- unless they're doing business out of state at a high
enough level to justify the inventory costs seems like a losing
proposition for them...
Say what you will about waterboarding and other forms of torture, but I
think that in this case, it would be appropriate if it would get a few
legislators to explain why they voted for this nonsensical law.
Of course, this being a newsgroup, it's virtually guaranteed that the OP
will ***NOT*** write his elected slob to find out why he/she/it voted for
Oh, that's easy -- they're protecting the
environment/consumer/children/constituents/etc./etc./etc. I'd wager OP
particular slob probably wasn't even in office yet when the stuff got
started and it simply fits w/ the general mentality of the area that
somebody has to look out for "everyman".
I operate under the "never attribute to malice what can reasonably be
explained by stupidity" or somesuch similar wording...
I really think for the most part they're trying to do "the right thing"
but everything has the law of unforeseen consequences and what starts
out as a simple, relatively rational attempt to do something like
conserve water (I'm thnking of the low-flow fixtures/low-quantity flush)
ends up growing into a multi-headed monster. W/ a detailed history,
wouldn't surprise me at all if that were how this started...
