When do I need a plumbing permit?

Plumbing permits are required for the new installation or replacement of existing plumbing equipment including water heaters & supply, drain, and vent lines. Fixtures such as toilets, faucets, and shower heads do not require a permit as long as the work being completed does not interfere with the existing valve; if a new valve is to be installed, a permit will need to be obtained and test shall be completed. If you are unsure if you need a permit contact the Building & Planning Department at 641-236-2600.
