Re: Running pipes through floor/ceiling

You can fire caulk if needed- usually to the garage. Other wise, it is usually not required for home construction.
But if required, you first need to know what rating you are trying to achieve. Then you pick the method based on that. Such as 30 minute, 1hr. or 2hr.
