Plumbing Permits for single family homes may be taken out by the home owner, or the licensed master plumbing doing the work. For any other plumbing work, such as for commercial properties, the plumbing permit must be drawn by a licensed master plumber. The minimum fee is $50, and that covers four (4) fixtures. 

Permitting is required to install any new fixtures. Replacement of plumbing fixtures in same locations does require a permit, but a replacement hot water heater does require a permit, mandated by the State.
