Installing New Water Heaters Requries a Building Permit in Sacramento County

If a water heater installation, parts and labor, costs $500.00 or more, California Building Code requires that a permit be taken out and a final inspection be performed by the county. 

For any rental property, the permit is supposed to be on display near the water heater.  With the Sacramento County  inspection program in full effect now the owner may be asked to certify that the water heater at the rental property has been permitted and has a final inspection. 

If you have installed a water heater and have no permit you can get one after the fact by going to the county offices and obtaining a permit and arranging for a final inspection by the building department.

Great news Robert, do you find that most people pull a permit to do their water heaters?

I do not think they do.  It is a hassel and adds expense both for the permit and having to meet the county inspector.  But, the inspection program is going to increase the amount of permits pulled.

Yes, anything over $500 requires a permit.

Robert,
Thank you for your article, for the very same reason on why people do not pull their own permits "It is a hassel and adds expense both for the permit and having to meet the county inspector"

Has lead me to expand my services to primarily contractors, but home owners as well. I own Quick-Permits here in Sacramento, I like to think I am the Link to connecting quality service (Licensed Contractors) with up to date code regulations (Agencies), and safety (Community).
