If plumbing is already existing and you are attaching fixtures, a plumbing permit is not required. For any alterations or new plumbing, a permit is required.

Only a licensed plumbing contractor will be given a permit for new home plumbing work. You may do your own plumbing for any renovations or additions to existing plumbing as long as you are pre-approved to do so by one of the Plumbing Inspectors. To do this, a detailed schematic will have to be submitted for review.


You’ll need a gas fitting permit for any gas fitting work in your house.

You’ll need at least two safety code inspections during the course of your heating, plumbing, or gas installations.

  1. A rough-in inspection before concealing any work.
  2. A final inspection when the project is done.

You’ll need to fix any deficiencies brought up during the inspections. You may need follow-up inspections depending on how bad the deficiencies are, or written notification to your inspector of their completion.

You can schedule your inspection online using MyInspections.
