City Plumbing Permit

We submitted our plumbing permits to the city today. They were approved.

Here’s what we did:

  1. Pay $392.70 (on top of $100 earlier for zoning permits).
  2. Got approvals from water district.
  3. Provide installation manuals for all equipment (water heaters, brewery, etc.).
  4. Hire a licensed engineer to compute calculations to determine how tanks need to be mounted to the floor so they don’t fall over (which would suck).
  5. Provide approved DEH plans.
  6. Provide letter from landlord approving plans.

One other thing we learned – prior to creating our plans for the DEH we had our building layout stamped and approved by the city. However, we had to make some little changes to our layouts for the DEH. Unaware this would matter, we only brought the approved DEH plans to the city to receive the plumbing permits. Turns out they also needed the stamped paperwork – even if outdated. Moral of the story is, if you don’t want to drive home in the middle of a meeting with the city, bring both the city stamped and DEH approved plans when getting a plumbing permit.
