Residential and Commercial Plumbing

All residential and commercial plumbing projects in Clermont County are inspected by State of Ohio certified plumbing inspectors to assure compliance with the Ohio State and Clermont County Adopted Plumbing Code.

Plumbing permits are required for the following types of work:

  • New construction
  • Additions
  • Fixture replacements
  • Remodels
  • Some types of repairs

Although some plumbing permits stand alone, most are part of a multi-step multi-agency construction process that requires several related but separate permits.

Permit expiration

Plumbing permits will expire in 12 months unless inspections have been completed. The person who pulled the permit can get a 12-month by requesting one at least ten days before the permit expires. 

After an inspection, the permit expires in six months unless there is another inspection.

You can get two six-month extensions if the person pulling the permit requests one at least ten days before the expiration date.
