Noone just decides to one day connect a dishwasher to a water line, that is called an installation (either a replacement or new install) and I agree, that requires a licensed plumber in almost any state, so does installing a new hot water heater, new faucet, toilet, etc.... What I am saying is POURING ANTIFREEZE AND BLOWING AIR IN A LINE to clear water does not require a licensed plumber. Now, you may be required to be registered in the state that you work in, but that is not what is being discussed here. If you are in this business I would hope you would already be registered as a general contractor. In PA I am registered as a home improvement contractor and anyone doing any work in the state must be registered to do work, but that covers me to do a winterization, if I was to hook up a dishwasher, then I would be in trouble because I am not a plumber, big difference.
And that is exactly what the NV code is implying, it is saying if its under $1,000 then its exempt except if its something that needs to be completed by a plumber, like a dishwasher install for example. Just because it has the word PLUMBER does not mean anything a plumber does, pouring antifreeze, using a plunger, etc.... is not the same as installing something
